"About mid-morning on the Pacific coast
of the Northwest, an early Spring day shows promise of a great experience
as your spirits lift along with the fog. You are part of an exciting
and rewarding moment in time as you observe the 'fog lifting' to allow
the sun to break out in radiant glory."
Artist comment: "I truly enjoy watching a perfect breaker rise up and begin to spill
over, to burst moments later into curtains of milky froth. It is
typical of the multitude of rollers, that I have come to refer to as the
"Thompson wave". The smooth surface builds toward a peak, then meets
itself in the center and rushes down its face spilling foam and creating
ribbons of foam to float gracefully onto the next incoming roller. I chose
a standard size stretched canvas to paint this oil, to convey the smooth
look of a perfect wave."
