I'm painting an awesome Seascape, 24 x 24 oil painting on stretched canvas that will be for sale during the Galveston Art Walk while gobs of people flock to the Island to shop and have fun.

Juicy Sample of the above painting.

This is an older painting I've done and thought I'd put it up here through eBay for sale. This particular scene is a man sailing what I now call Offats Cove. It's originally named Offats Bayou which makes no sense what so ever to me and I'm sure others have thought that as well. So I officially call it Offats Cove which sounds a lot better. I was actually paddling around in a kayak on a Saturday morning and these sailboats were out having some fun.

The sea wall can be seen in this painting. It's pretty big about 10' or so in most areas. Some areas the sand is pretty built up and you can easily jump down and your on the beach.

Ever been really hot then get in the water and it would be really cold? This reminds me of days like that where the water is deep enough close to shore that the sun hasn't warmed it up enough.

Learning to Simplify, New June Workshop......



NEW: Make sure to bring 2 9x12 panels instead of 2 8x10 but if you've already bought them that's fine. Also a sketchpad 9x12 instead of 8x10. The bigger 9x12 just gives us a little more room to work on.

Some more workshop photos from Billie Rinaldi who snapped some while everyone was painting during the previous workshop. Everyone had a great time painting that I didn't get enough photo's of the group. Me in the photo on the left in green hat talking to a fellow painter while doing a demo and his daughter in the middle with her painting of the surf. Right, photo of an easel setup and study of the waves.

In the meantime, since I'm waiting for my camera to get in, I'll be posting some older works I have on eBay which are 6x6.

Buying on Ebay....

Hi everyone I have recently discovered some sort of fishing scam on eBay. A window popped up asking for user name and password with an address of  i.ebayimg . com:80 on it. If you see it close it. I also suggest making sure you windows is up to date and virus software is running and up to date.

Thanks,
Randall
