Now residing in northern California, I find wonderful coastlines, hidden coves and vistas and the amazing pelican birds.
I have been interested in painting them for years, but felt I needed to be around them in person to get a real feel for expressing their enduring quality.
With the advent of completing this work, I have made a significant contribution to not only the birds, but also a noteworthy coastal image that could even work if the pelicans “flew away”.
The theme of marine coastlines are endless and I’m sure that the 15 years away from the subject has regenerated fuel for newly inspired works such as “Misty Cove” in this genre.
