Observation: North


Artwork Notes:

The view looking north from this science research pier. I could have approached this totally differently and used the perspective to really go after the unique view of the coast from just offshore, leaving out all the railing and hoists and sciency stuffs, but that wouldn’t really tell the whole story would it?

Big thanks to my friend Bruce who got me out there on this recent trip and made this series happen. Looking forward to touring the boat someday as well!
