"December Day" by Carol Thompson

December Day

"'December Day' is a typical scene along the Pacific Northwest Coast, with the waves crashing onto high rocky cliffs, the air heavy with rain, and seagulls making a final sweep of their feeding grounds before settling in to await the approaching storm."

Artist comment:  "This is an oil painting of the typical weather on the Northwest Pacific coast of Oregon.  the sky is grey and seagulls are flying over the waves to search for a morsel of food before the storm breaks.  I wanted to convey the feeling of wind and cold as the splash breaks and runs in rivulets over the volcanic rock.  If you look closely, you will see a hint of a rainbow in the mist as the sun begins to disappear in the approaching clouds.  When I began this piece, I had a certain idea in mind, yet, I was unable to make it work.  So, I put it aside for a year, and then took another look at it.  I was able to make a few changes and finish the foreground.  It has become one of my best selling limited edition prints."
