"Abstraction of Sea Anemone Tide Pool " is acrylic on museum wrapped canvas 3 feet by 2 feet by 1 1/2 inches deep. For sale $400
I worked myself up emotionally to paint from a minimal pencil sketch done on location. I tried to go back and photograph this area but the tide was coming in on a very stormy 40 mile an hour rain storm. The coral color is my own emotional poetic license. This painting is a break through for me because I need to work quickly like this to express the emotions and feelings of being at Seal Rock.
In comparison to the photographs, painting is a much more immediate and direct form of creating communicative pictures. Comparing them for value is not possible because it is like comparing apples and oranges - a subjective judgement.
