Contemplating the Ocean

Contemplating the Ocean SOLD
5"x7" oil on panel

I painted on Siesta Key Beach this morning. It was a cool, breezy, overcast day, but as I've said before, the beach is quite lovely no matter what the weather! Now, I don't typically paint figures, but as I was working on this seascape a couple came and set down their blanket in the sand in front of me. He lay on his side reading a book and she sat staring out onto the ocean for about an hour- both staying perfectly still- so I decide to add them in, (they were such obliging models after all!) The photo I took of this painting is not the best quality, as it was taken with the camera on my phone, but I wasn't able to shoot it properly because the couple purchased the painting on sight just as I applied the final brush strokes...SOLD!
