The Outer Banks on North Carolina have been on my mind. I was thinking of Ocracoke when I painted this little abstract seascape.
The Outer Banks is like no other place I have visited. Surrounded by water, the residents are a hardy type who take pride in providing for themselves. The danger of living there, is still felt, as the tropical storms and hurricanes devastate the dunes and road on a regular basis. In earlier times, shipwrecks littered the beaches.
I painted with a palette knife and oils, leaving it as raw and wild as the beaches.
Thanks for viewing my art today.
