Surge (Beginning Stage)

9×12″ oil on canvas panel; click on painting for purchase information.

The rhythm and blues of nature, the beating of the waves against the shore, the cymbal crash of surge on the sand…what can be more renewing of spirit? Here is the underlayer to a very simple seascape. I took “wave photos” many years ago at the edge of the Atlantic on the Outerbanks, and this came from one of them. Here I was going for the big gesture of moving water, and few strokes.
