Back to Morro

Back to Morro (dry pastel triptych on La Carte, 24 x 54)

Cathump, cathump, cathump. There goes my heart again while I stand smack dab in the middle of the ocean's spray.

If you imagine standing on this shorline, then turning just to your left, you would see the scene from the painting below ("Return to Morro"). You can see them both, unobstructed, on my website. It is probably apparent by now that I am a bit obsessed with this place. I love the idea of a series because it is the perfect excuse to indulge such an obsession; just coming up long enough for air.

  8. Sandra, that is such a remarkably kind compliment; coming from a fellow artist. Thank you!

    Karen, It's funny you say that because, oddly, before I started painting seascapes, I sort of felt the same way :). Thanks so much for the kudos, Karen. I'll be popping over to your place soon...

    Suzanne, you are too kind, really! That is such an amazing compliment and so treasured. Thank you.

  17. Hi Flutietootie (love that name :-), Thank you so much for the nice comment; I really appreciate it!

    Honestly, though, it was quite a challenge at that size since sometimes I have a tough time concentrating for more than...what was I saying?
