Beach 2


Beach 2 – Acrylic on Canvas – 36” x 48”

This acrylic on canvas painting is the second in a series inspired by patterns of sand and surf observed on a late summer trip to the beach. Landscape has always been my subject, and this includes the small worlds of texture and pattern found by focusing in on small segments of the natural world, such as the landscape patterns in a leaf…or in this case the varying colors in sand, shell and sea and the patterns given by wind, surf, bird and man. The painting is worked in a series of acrylic glazes, with raised drawings, incised lines, cloth imprints and alcohol resist.
