Day 4 - 30/30 Challenge - Ocean Waves

Ocean Waves, Robert Moses Beach, 9x12", pastel on mi-teintes paper

I forgot I did this! This is one of the paintings I worked on ahead of time. I did it plein air in pastel on mi-teintes paper at Robert Moses Beach State Park. This was a couple of days after a hurricane passed far south and east. Though I wasn't there for the truly gigantic waves, they were still impressive – breaking far out from the shoreline, crashing at the sand bar and cresting again before hitting the beach. Beautiful!

Though many of these paintings won't be for sale right away, I'd like to direct you to my Etsy page where I'm having a little sale. Please consider purchasing a painting because, a. Christmas is coming, and these little 6x6s really make nice gifts, and/or b. the mermaid needs to buy some picture frames for the big solo show and selling a couple of these little guys would be a BIG help!

I'd also like to suggest that you sign up on the right side of this page for emails (not every day), and the follow button to get notifications when this blog is updated (for this month nearly every day, most times, not so much).
