"The Calm Before The Storm" by Carol Thompson

The Calm Before The Storm

"The morning sun glows on the rocks and water as dark clouds build over the ocean. It is ‘the calm before the storm’."

Artist comment:  "Sometimes I like to break format and paint in oil on a square canvas. The challenge is to portray the linear look of the sea and sky in that kind of format. Employing narrow bands of blue, purple and green, I was able to accomplish just that. Three well placed rocks bring in a note of warmth and balance the composition."
