Moonlight Moorage, 6 x 8 oil
A bit of color attracts my eye. Diving down, I see a large maroon mound. It has the texture of some corals, but something about the patterning strikes me as vaguely radial. Looking it up, I find that it is a pillow star. Funny how something can look so much like something quite different.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
