This painting has been in the works for many years, inspired by a month of traveling around India long ago. This oarsman on the Ganges River rowed me around at sunrise while I did some watercolor sketching in the boat, dipping my brush in the river for water. The Ganges is a holy river, a source of solace, a final resting place, a beautiful escape, a place of commerce and tourism….many things to many people.

One of a series of oil paintings made from life with my toes in the sand, trying to capture the sublime beauty of waves coming shore.

Yet another lovely late afternoon painting on the beach. Time is limited while working en plein air (everything is constantly changing), but I love capturing the subtle shifts in light and color, and the energy and sparkle of the water. All while barefoot in the sand with birds flying around me.

A February 2016 trip to Cuba with fellow artists and Plein Air Magazine left an indelible mark. So much history, especially with the sea, as both friend and foe, escape route and tether to the world.
