I started surfing in 1966 so it’s fair to say I’ve been in love with waves for literally 50 years. The photographs I used to paint this oil were taken on a beautiful January day with a large swell running. As I rounded the corner and caught sight of the ocean my jaw dropped and I immediately pulled over to just drink it all in. I utilized a telephoto lens to pull my subject in from a distance and later worked in the studio trying to capture the power of the breaker, and beauty of the spindrift created by the offshore wind.

On Our Way
Carol and I were on our way down the Oregon coast for the umpteenth time when this old cedar fence caught my eye near Cape Perpetua. The wildflowers and mood at the edge of the sea completed the story. By the way, no matter how well thought out a painting seems initially, there are ALWAYS surprises and opportunities to make it stronger during the painting process. As I neared the end of this watercolor I realized I needed to interrupt the viewer’s eye as it traveled along the fence line. Adding someone’s driftwood walking stick accomplished that. To be honest, there are paintings that change substantially from inspiration to completion. Years ago I realized the only thing that mattered is if the painting “works” in the end. The responsibility and freedom an artist has is to make sure that happens.
