The is the first of two 12”x12” paintings of the same subject, the second has a slightly different view. I am always amazed by the the variety of wonderful compositions you can find by simply focusing on the view a foot to the side or by changing your vantage point in relation to the horizon. Then there is the lighting, changing so quickly that Monet painted just minutes on one piece before he would pick up a new canvas. Unlike Monet and contemporary plein air artists, I use a series of photographs for me studio work. I don’t merely copy, I use photos to invent new views. I seldom find a scene to paint as is. Painters are inventors whether they are working representationally or using abstraction or are completely non-objective. #maineart#maineartist#mainething#landscapepainter#landscapepainting#seascape#rockyshore#rockycoast#coastalmaine#southernmaine#biddeford#paintingoftheday
There is a beauty that sings a chorus in our heart when we walk that coastal track. A magical dance of ocean and light that calmly leads us back. Towards a place of mental peace, immersed in rugged creation. We take this time of solitude to rest in our isolation.
Almost all of the Algarve beaches have at least two things in common: they are both extremely appealing as well as hard to get to. Rule of thumb: the more secluded, the prettier - and the prettier, the bigger the climbing effort 🙄 Nonetheless, the southern coast of Portugal holds one of the most beautiful praias I've ever seen 👙🕶🌞
Well this was a TON OF FUN! I paint famous works of art (with a little marine twist 😜) onto tiny canvases and take them to the rockyshore to see what their inhabitants think! Tune in for a seriously silly video 😂
