"Moolack Beach" by Carol Thompson

Moolack Beach

"A popular scene on the Oregon Coast is Moolack Beach, located north of Newport. With the lighthouse at Yaquina Head in the distance and a lazy fall morning surf below, a group of colorful worm banners, spin socks, and parafoils catch the eye and imagination of travellers."

Artist comment:  "Kite flying is popular on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest, where westerly winds are consistantly sweeping over sandy beaches.  It, therefore, is a perfect setting for kite flying enthusiasts to send aloft a colorful display of fluttering fabric.  Here, in oil on canvas, I recreated the scene near Newport, Oregon.  I sketched the headland and lighthouse and lightly indicated where the kites would be.  I painted sky, sea, and land.  When the background was dry, I did the kites and 'socks'.  Lastly, I drew in a line connecting them to the beach."
