King Tide

16″ x 22″

The dramatic king tide covers the beach and crashes against the rocks and cliff at Coquille Point in Bandon. This painting, originally painted in 2016, was reworked to decrease the size of the foreground rock and make the incoming wave more dramatic.  I like working in media that allow me to rework a painting, sometimes years later, to bring it to a better finish.  Here, the UART sanded paper was very receptive to brushing off color and adding more layers of soft pastel.

Cat Cathedral

18" x 12"

This painting is named for two of the major rock formations
at Bandon, Oregon.  One is Cat Rock in the Face Rock Legend. 
The other is the large hollow Cathedral Rock with its 
various doors and windows.  The rocks are a continual 
source of subject matter for paintings as the ever changing
coastal light and ocean tides present them in new ways.
