The Challenge

A Windy Day at Grimes Cove
9" x 12"
Oil on oil-primed canvas mounted on Board
$900  SOLD

This was done the day I painted with the Plein Air Painters of Maine at the "Great Paint Out" sponsored by the Oil Painters of America. After a variety of weather conditions that started out with rain, then became cloudy, then sunny, then cloudy again, the wind picked up and the sea became very active and the waves began to crash against the shore. The challenge...... to choose the atmosphere you wanted to portray and stick with it. Obviously I chose the wind and the active sea. Such an exhilarating day.
