"Spotlight" by Carol Thompson


"As though on cue, the sun is breaking through the clouds of an afternoon storm on the edge of the sea. At precisely the moment of the peak of the wave, a ray of sunshine spotlights the back of the wave and lights up the translucency with a glow of color."

Artist comment:  "This painting is a result of a wonderful moment in time when, as I watched the turbulent surf, the sun broke through a stormy sky and spotlighted an ocean wave just as it crested and broke into a spillover. I reached for my camera and waited for the next occurance so I could record it forever, but it did not happen like that again! Later in my studio, I painted the memory of that exciting scene."
