Path to the Beach

3.5 x 5 inches, oil on paper.
Hey everybody! I have clawed my way to the surface once again. It was a very busy summer. Work was hectic, and in August Kay and I moved to a nicer house here in Portland. We're on the verge of being settled enough to resume "normal" activities, such as painting. My studio is still just a pile of boxes in the basement, but soon, very soon, I'm going to put together the bare bones of a painting set-up. And paint something.

For now, here's an older painting from the Oregon coast. The blue band on the horizon is the ocean.

This is a very positive painting. The goal is just beyond the rise, just past the dune. It's a beautiful clear day at the beach. A gentle path leads me into the scene. Thanks for posting this image. I needed it right now.

Glad to see that you are back online. I really liked the last painting, but I agree with Kay. I can imagine walking this path with the anticipation of reaching the ocean. Send new address details dude.

Thanks my friends for checking in. Sorry to have been silent for so long. I can't wait to start painting again.

I think Kay is right; I always liked this painting but didn't really know why until she verbalized it. Maybe I'll put it up on the wall.
