"Haystack Rock And Dunes" by Carol Thompson

"It is a warm spring day on the Oregon coast at 'haystack rock and dunes'."

Artist comment:  "'Haystack rock and dunes' at Cannon Beach on the Oregon coast is a popular tourist destination for artists, photographers, and folks in general who love the ocean and the magnificence of the monumental offshore monolith known as 'Haystack Rock'. I, for one, am of the artist category, and plead guilty to painting it's portrait not once, but several times. Here, I chose to fill the top of the painting with the rock and its companions, to give the impression that it is so big, it just doesn`t seem to fit within the borders of the canvas. I chose an oblique angle to include a bit of the sand dune to break up the straight line of the beach and add grass for interest. The grey/blue of the sky and water 'cool' the overall warms. I put in a few people on the beach to give scale to this magnificent structure."
