In honor of the windy weather we have been having on Whidbey Island over the past several days, I thought I would post this little piece of the storm just outside my studio.  I love this kind of weather. Well, except for the power outages. That's a bit of a bother.

Waves from the island to all, 
and always, 


  1. Sandy, Your waves never disappoint. In fact, it was one of your wave paintings that drew me to your work in the first place almost 2 years ago. Keep these beauties coming.


  2. Gorgeous pic of the sea in one of its moods :)
    Hope you're safe and warm xx

  3. Sandy, it gives the sense of being there in your studio looking out and seeing this stormy weather and it's affect on the beach. A great atmospheric painting.

  4. There are just no words!
    Your art is nothing short of incredible! All I can say is that I am sighing in awe :0)

  5. Hi, I love your work, I love the colors and light that you give very good job congratulations, greetings.
