Paintings from seeing high surf at Rocky Creek


My intention was to use what I was experiencing as a springboard to an abstraction leading to a journey. I feel these paintings were about the energy of surf that roared like freight trains rushing to a crash on the rocks. The water exploded. These two paintings are just a beginning. Another one could make a leap to something but I don't know what yet.

You really did capture the energy of the surf and the feeling at that place where it churns and beats against the rocks. I like the fog with it.

Rain, I have done what I usually advise. I did three studies of the Spritly Splashing Breaker with a portrait of me. Now I will start another similar painting.
