“Sunset Through The Keyhole”

Sunset Through The Keyhole

These sea stacks are within Ecola Park on the northern Oregon coast. Dramatic and uniquely shaped by endless Pacific breakers, they are a resting place for sea lions and a rookery for sea birds. I’m amazed how many of our coastal rocks have holes through them. Some are very small while others, like this one, are large enough to drive a truck though.
The walk between Crescent Beach and Indian Beach on the hard sand of Ecola is one of my favorites. The contrast between the dark basalt rock and airy sunset skies was what inspired this watercolor. The reflections of sky and rock in the tide pools added the interest and drama I was after for this composition.

“High Tide Line – Cannon Beach”


High Tide Line – Cannon Beach

Summer’s gentle seas and onshore breeze annually replenish the sand washed away by our winter storms. Additionally, with each passing day, the numbers of shells increase as they collect at the high tide line. Inspiration for this painting came while walking the shore and simply lowering my field of vision to include the beauty right at my feet.
