"Out of all the many days when the ocean is turbulent and fierce, there occasionally comes a day of peaceful 'serenity'."
Artist comment: "This is an oil painting on a tung wood substrate. I treated it like I would an ordinary canvas by applying two coats of gesso. I then sketched my composition with a neutral grey oil. Keeping it simple, I painted sky, water, reflective beach and wet, dark sand, then a few rock formations to balance the composition. I spattered droplets of paint in the foreground to indicate small pebbles and white seashells."
