Beach 14

Beach 14 – Acrylic on Canvas – 11″ x 14″


This painting is the 14th in a series inspired by natural patterns observed on an ocean beach.

I am interesting in the space where water and sand meet. The movement of waves, lines of retreating water, the deposits of sea foam soften that border, making the line between sea and sand unfixed and fluid. I used molding paste to build texture, and opaque and thin washes of earth colors — sienna, ochre, grey, teal & white.
