It’s limitless,,,,the power of waves to engage our entire focus, to keep us in the moment and transfixed. I’ll always be hypnotized by them and wanting to paint more, more,,,,,,

These two small paintings are from Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Escape, and enjoy.

Technical painting notes: The paintings are on primed, rag watercolor paper. Much of the painting was done using a palette knife. I added Winsor/Newton Liquin Impasto medium to the paint to give it more substance and lend an interesting three-dimensionality to what is essentially a spontaneous study.
