  Ruby Beach is usually a vibrant and wild Olympic National Park beach, but on occasion in late summer the ocean can be more like a calm lake – little surf and almost no wind. We were there to see a sunset and it felt like this. It felt like warm coffee. The headlands beyond the beach aren’t quiet as close as what I painted, but it just seemed like I needed to stack up the levels of receding shorelines and show some abstract textures to that area. And maybe some of you will notice the big missing sea stack on the left side. No, not on purpose, but if you stand just here on the trail down to the beach, that big rock is more to the left and out of view. I think it works.

Here’s a photo of the painting and frame that’s included. If you don’t want the custom frame, we can do that too. This is the original painting, NOT a print.

Low Tide

 Low Tide Clouds

After all the past big mural posts, this week it’s a simple painting. I love constructing small stories into paintings, especially these little calm inlets of saltwater around the Northwest. If you read this blog, you’ll see these fairly often. Not much tells a story here except the reflections of the hillside conifers and the high bank in sunlight, yet there’s a lot crammed into this, but, then again, not really. Northwest glacial rubble, firs and hemlock on the shore, partly cloudy, shallow clouds with blue sky breaking through. Minus tide. Logs on the far beach, not much kelp on the rocks so it must be winter. That’s it – a story painted into a 9″ x 12″ rectangle.

This ORIGINAL painting is varnished acrylic on linen canvas, 9″ x 12″ and $110 unframed.
A custom wood frame makes it a total of $130 and shipping adds just a bit more depending on your zone or if you take the frame. This is the original painting, NOT a print.

Low Tide – Butter Clam

Walking on the beach in town the other morning, I spotted this open shell and thought it just needed to be in a painting. It wasn’t the shell so much as the little ripples in the beach itself. As the tide goes below normal low, these quiet muddy beaches become exposed to us, showing all sorts of stuff not commonly seen. One of the most interesting parts of them, to me, are these little swales set up by the gentle wave action. These are only about 12″ apart and an inch deep, and they clearly show the soft wave energy in where normal “surf” is about 4″ high. Trough, hill, trough, hill – and on into the beach. It makes for an interesting subject to paint. In an hour, this scene was gone from view, covered by the next inbound tide.

This ORIGINAL painting is varnished acrylic on stretched canvas, 8″ x 10″ and $100 unframed.
A nice hardwood frame makes it a total of $130 and shipping adds just a bit more depending on your zone or if you take the frame. This is the original painting, NOT a print.
