"Stones" by Carol Thompson

"An unusual cloud formation known as mammatus seems to echo the rounded 'stones' at the edge of the sea."

Artist comment:  "At a place where a river meets the sea, a large 'field' of rocks has been washed by both forces until worn smooth and scattered loosely on the shore. This odd happenstance occured one day when my husband and I walked on the beach near Seaside, Oregon. I painted this scene in my studio. Beginning with the sky, I sketched the major design on a narrow vertical canvas. I painted the clouds, carefully blending the oil paint to convey softness. The ocean waves were rendered very simply to not distract from the design of the stones. It was a fun challenge to paint the lights and darks of the rounded 'stones'."
