"With a large 'crash', an incoming wave hits an offshore rock."
Artist comment: "With oil paint on canvas, I recreated a scene I had observed on a recent outing at the beach near Bandon, Oregon. After watching wave after wave, suddenly, a magnificent wave crashed resoundingly upon a large rock. I painted this scene later in my studio from my memory of the event. I used oil on canvas, starting with a workable sketch, then rendering the sky, sea, and ripples. I finished by painting the rock and the run-over and trickles. The seagulls were the final accent to add 'life' to the scene."
