"Crashing Waves, Ogunquit, Maine," oil on canvas, 5 x 7

"Crashing Waves, Ogunquit, Maine"
oil on canvas on board 5 x 7
As mentioned in a previous post, I had an opportunity to spend a little time on the coast of Maine, at Ogunquit. I was so impressed and inspired by the waves, the gorgeous rock formations and the late afternoon light, it did not take long for me to begin working on a few small pieces. This is the first of several I have completed. Its always a challenge to work in a small format with a subject so vast and awesome as the ocean. Possibly this winter I will begin some larger scale paintings of the sea; what better way to spend the cold winter days of Vermont than thinking and reflecting on the warm summer days by the sea.
