Refugio Waves

15×30″ oil on linen– When you paint waves from observation, you are literally taking details from dozens of unique waves, all breaking in their own particular patterns of glass and spray and blending them together into one wave, frozen in time, that pretty much sums up what you noticed from many. It is hard… I sometimes wish I could pause time, but when I do so with a camera, I’m never satisfied. There is more motion in the amalgamation.
