One of the few out surfing a true longboard day as the waves were quite small. The evening light made for quite a nice cast shadow on the waves a nice surprise.

The light was a key focal point in this scene and having the kids running around was an added bonus. Even though this is an oil painting it does have the look of a watercolor painting. Sometimes I switch brushes to have a certain effect and a good used one fit this perfectly.

I had some beets I picked up from the supermarket since they were different than the ordinary red kind I thought I would have a go at painting them. Here's one of them I thought would make a nice challenge. The hard part was the leaf getting the greens and the veins in. To give a good idea of what I thought would be a good frame here's a Tuscan frame a bit more than the usually ones I recommend but I think it goes well.

This was painted just as the bottles sat except for one bottle the Gamblin bottle on the left which was replaced with a bottle that was about a 1/3 full of Galkyd Lite that had solidified. The other bottles are clockwise starting from the top, my jar of Walnut Oil I use as a medium on occasion. An empty tea bottle and finally Linseed Oil. The blue in the background is a blue bag. Took a while to paint this one and was a joy to finish it up as it all came together.

Along the beach at Freeport, TX a little further up the coast there's a section of sandy road that parallels the beach front and this view is from that area during a really foggy day. You had to be real careful driving as the fogged literally rolled in and swamped the beach front.

Late night painting until the wee hours. I've painted a couple paintings in low light situations and I think this one is up there as a good one. Sometimes things catch my eye around the house that I think would make a nice painting and this was one on the list.

Most of Galveston's beach front is, well, a sandy beach. There is a small section along the seawall that turns to a rocky area, large granite stones that are right at the foot of the Seawall. This view isn't to far from that area near the 61st pier.

With the many painting's I've done of surf, there's day's I say to myself "Is there anything more to paint involving just surf"?. Some day's it seems the same, but a day like today got me going again. Here's to some evening surf  at Freeport, Texas. Freeport, by the way, is just south of Galveston. You have to go down a nice stretch of the coast on Galveston Island, cross over a toll bridge over San Luis Pass and then on to Freeport. Freeport's surf tends to be bigger than Galveston do to the deeper waters closer to shore.

Frame Example

Your at the beach, wading through the surf, in whatever you have on at that time, and enjoying every second. As the waves wash pass the cool water splashes your clothes. A little chilly compared to the heat of the summer day. The colder water closer to the sandy bottom swirls around your legs and feet. This causes your feet to sink in every so slowly after each wave rushes past. Stand in one place to long and you might get stuck, feet submerged under silty bottom. When the next wave washes past you fall off balance and become totally soaked. Ah, now your in for it. You might as well stay.

Just want to say Happy 4th of July everyone. Right now it's rainy cats and dogs with lightning and thunder like no other day this year. Summer brings the best out of the storms. Quick note the British aren't on this beach must have landed somewhere else, lol.

One of the lesser known ways I paint, abstract, or leaning towards it. This one was fun, will do more of this in the future. Naming paintings has became a challenge after all of the paintings I've painted. However some just flow with names, this one, "The Cuban" stuck out like a sore thumb to me. Reminded me of those old vehicles still driven to this day over in Cuba. The man in his white, Cuban made clothes, staring into the distant horizon where sea meets sky.

When the waves get pretty big on the island they can cause a lot of salt spray which can create a hazy look to the distant houses. What made this scene interesting to me was the clouds as they cast there shadow on the land and the foreground sun on the marsh grass.
