Beach 3 – Acrylic on Canvas – 36” x 48”
This acrylic on canvas painting is the third 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 tiny segments of the natural world, such as the landscape patterns in a leaf…or in this case the varying colors in sand and sea and the patterns and textures created by wind, surf, grasses, as well as birds and other small creatures that make the beach their home. The painting includes raised line drawings, imprinted and incised patterns, alcohol resist, and a series of acrylic glazes.
