"Pounding Wave" by Carol Thompson

Pounding Wave

"The Pacific Ocean on the Northwest coast is beautiful but treacherous. On grey windy days such as this, the 'pounding waves' beat against unyielding offshore rock formations in a spectacular display."

Artist comment:  "The simplicity of this composition makes it one of my favorite paintings, and it is one of the most popular of my seascape prints.  I emphasized the brilliance of the translucent waves by making the rock and sky dark with just a hint of sunlight .  Even the deep water is intensified by the brighter blue-white of the floating foam.  The Oregon coast, as usual, was my inspiration for this small oil on stretched canvas. The offshore volcanic rocks meet the head-on assault of the tumbling breakers with an unyielding strength.  That metaphor is the embodiment of my life philosophy."
