"What a beautiful sunrise!
What a beautiful ocean!
What a beautiful 'seafoam morning'!"
Artist comment: "Sometimes a perfect morning by the sea gives back a glorious expanse of color that just begs to be captured on canvas. I took one such moment (in my mind) back to my studio to recreate in oil on canvas. I sketched the scene loosely, keeping in mind good composition and balance. I painted the dark water, headlands and rocks. Next I did the sky with it's still lingering blush of pink, bringing that pink onto the rolling breaker. I put in the darks and let the oil 'set-up', while I painted the seafoam green with it's foam patterns. Then I painted the runoff on the rocks. Finally a trio of 'M' birds at the horizon completed that wonderful memory."
