Sunlit Break

Big surf early in the morning. The sun rises a little off shore to the left of the beach looking out into the ocean here at Galveston Island, Texas which makes for some interesting colors on the waves. While painting this painting I thought of the impressionists like Monet and Renoir. This is why I paint, a sort of connection to those painters in the past who I admire. I once visited the Impressionist exhibit held at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, and was thrilled to see up close all the brush strokes from the various painters of that time. It would be truly amazing to be able to go back in time and live and paint with these famous painters and experience the day to day things.

A Crushing Wave

Sold

I think this was further south than the 27th jetty. Since by the time I left the 27th jetty it was still less light. This was one that got away from the pack of surfers, a nice big one.

Ventured to the coast early one morning hoping the waves would stay up and they didn't disappoint. Biggest I've seen in a long time. Here's a local catching some waves to the right of the Flagship Pier.

Sold

Some sheep at a nearby farm south of where I live. I'm not sure if you have a nick name for these guys but we do, called woolie boogers. Not sure where that name originated from. This farm had plenty of sheep munching around in an area that seemed forgotten, with an abandoned house.

Fishing for Crabs

Sold

I've never fished for crabs before on purpose that is. They usually get my live or dead shrimp on the hook. Sneaky little devils they are. If your fishing in shallow water with a cork and a dead bait and you see your cork bob up and down more than usual or it slowly drifts about a foot and then stops you've been crabbed lol.
