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.

Cape Arago’s unusual rocky land structure with its many coves, inlets and rock formations gives a painterly setting for the lighthouse.  A light fog bank approaches to color the scene.

Face Rock Fog

It is amazing how little wisps of fog can change a scene by hiding huge structures and throwing light and color around.  As we were walking Bandon’s beach at sunset, the fog moved across the Kittens and then Face Rock, changing the colors of the sunset and beach reflections.  The feeding gulls remained a constant, anchoring the scene.

Coquille Point Sunset

  Sometimes things just line up.  Here we have sea stack rock
formations, setting sun, clouds, ocean waves and mist all in 
the right place.  As I spend many evenings walking on the 
beach, I am gaining some appreciation for those ancient people
who built Stonehenge.  This was painted from reference photos 
that were taken October 1st.  Now in December, the sun is
setting much to the left, or more south. 
  I am finding that soft pastels work well for capturing the 
blues, yellows and oranges of a sunset without mixing and 
making the sky green and gray.
