Artist notes: Recipe for tranquil seaside painting - Take a calm warm October afternoon, one linen board, one larger round paintbrush, a few oil pigments on a palette and an French Box easel to the shore. Organize all ingredients in a leisurely fashion without thinking about it too much. Stand and step back several times while waving paint onto the canvas then walk away. Done! Or maybe not. Another tranquil afternoon five months later in March was needed to finally finish the work.
