Incoming

(oil, 15"x30")
Boy, did I enjoy doing this painting. I just launched into it, no establishing the image before I started to apply the color. (although I did use a photo for reference) The wave just appeared on it's own, pulling itself out of the paint strokes. I think I am finally beginning to see the results of all my experimentation, teaching myself how to paint, how to use oils... (not to mention all the time I spend in the water looking, looking, looking. )
I'm off to Bali for a few weeks, so no painting for a while...
