"Magical Moment" by Carol Thompson

"Magical Moment"

"The definition of 'Magical' is 'of magic, enchanting, bewitching'.  The moment when the sunrays extend to the sea is a 'magical moment'."

Artist comment:  "This scene is painted from memory from an actual occurence when Ed and I were watching the waves on the coast of Washington, U.S.A.  The rain clouds were departing and the light lit up the sea before us.  Since it is nearly impossible to paint the sun, I had to indicate its effects on sea and waves.  I sketched the composition with oil in a neutral tone, then began with the sky.  I brought the blue down to the surface of the sea.  All else was shrouded in gray.  I painted the translucent waves and completed the foam patterns, then the highlights on the spashes and rising swells."
