Daily Oil Painting, Birds, "Waverunners" 12x12" SOLD

These birds were my constant companions on early morning walks on the beaches of Sanibel.


After 40+ years of seeing the sun rise over the Atlantic, it seemed odd to see it rise from behind the dunes at the Gulf of Mexico.

I used both brush and palette knife on this one.  I like the contrast of texture achieved in this way.

The birds ignored me and my camera, knowing they could move much faster then I can.

So pretty.
You captured the early morning light so well. Is there anything better than an early walk on the beach?
I say no!

This is a beauty, Carol! Love the touches of orange amid the blues and cools.

I am glad that you have had an opportunity to see the other coast of Florida and have enjoyed the sugar sands and aqua waters (in 5 shades of blue and green!)

I will be posting the first painting you did for me and the photo that provided the inspiration on Saturday for my Blog birthday. Merci, I see it daily!
