The Light Contagious


Artwork Notes:

One of the best things about plein air painting all over the California coast is that it requires me to post up and really watch the waves for several hours. By the time I wrapped this one up at sunset, I knew I’d be back the next morning, and where I’d sit in the line up. With the recent rains, it was a gamble of contagion roulette out there with the creek mouth open and flowing​ to sea. Scored some fun waves, but lost the game of roulette, my throat’s been sore for 2 weeks now.
