Two years ago I painted this the day before the big
Surf championship on the North Shore of Oahu.
Two years later it is not quite finished and another
Championship is under way. Time is wasting, go surf
(Or paint ),

"Sandy Beach Shade"
16 x 20
(painted plein air during Mark Brown's class on Saturday early morning July 27th 2013)
Monica posed for the class as we tried to cover up in the hot sun.
It was a beautiful day and the ocean was spectacular.
I learned a little and painted fast to capture the perfect moment.
I have several corrections to make but hope this post inspires you to paint
or at least sit in the little bit of shade at Sandy's Beach and watch the waves swoosh around the rocks.

I fell in love with watching artists paint when I visited Georgetown in Washington DC at 9 years old.
My great cousin Beatrice Bulla lived there, near M and Wisconsin, and I was in awe of the painters at their french easels capturing the scenes of the day.
We walked the cobblestone streets lined with artist. Each artist had a different version of what we all were seeing.So art, like intense banter, was showing us the wide perspective of each persons views. It is in that joy of difference that I find my most intense excitement in painting plein air. It is in the unique interpretation of a scene or the surprise rendering of an object that I realize worship and thankfulness for a world that never ceases to amaze.
March 13th Cactus Bistro held the LUNCH and ART DEMO "CREATIVE CACTUS"
