CALIFORNIA SUNSET, 5X7, OIL, SOLD

Shelley Smart documents the day to day activities at the beach on her great blog "A Year at the Beach".  She is a fantastic artist and photographer and was nice enough to share some of her photography with me.  So, I painted this little seascape from her reference.
How could I turn down a scene like this!   I still didn't have it out of my blood, so I decided to try a little acrylic abstract based on the same reference.
Shelley, thank you...I hope you approve.

$75   8x8" on canvas panel

Can't decide if I like the abstract or more impressionistic piece. Either way, well done, Carol.

What a beautiful photographer she is. Your paintings are perfection! Sunsets here in southern CA are quite simply, stunning. You capture the perfectly! :)

Jane said...

Wonderful painting. Both are beautiful.

Aren't Shelley's photos wonderful! And what an amazing painting - both of them - no wonder she approves.

Wow! I can't decide which I like better! Wonderful!

I love both of them! The original looks so much like the photo, but I love how you have created the abstract view too, bravo!

These are gorgeous! Lots of movement in the oil, but that acrylic one really draws me in. Awesome texture, maybe do a few more acrylics.
