"Sparkle On The Sea" by Carol Thompson

"The sun breaks through a midmorning gloom and scatters a 'sparkle on the sea'."

Artist comment:  "This painting with oil on canvas was an exploration of the effect of sunlight on the ocean from a low angle on a winter day. I chose to exemplify one major wave with it's foam patterns and translucencies. The angle of the sun is from slightly forward of one's left shoulder. I painted a dark sky to 'pop' the wave and splash. Bringing the same dark grey down to the foreground gave me opportunity to make sunlit foam patterns. Just a few dots of white and a couple of selected 'stars' show the dazzle of sunshine on the water."
