This two square feet of beach was my first beach painting. I just have no interest at all in generic scenes of sky, water, waves and sand. I loved this conglomeration of flotsam that ended up in this spot at high tide. I came along the next day and “saved” it with my camera. Months later I carefully drew the scene rock by rock and shell by shell and then transferred that to a panel and got down to the business of turning it into a painting. If you’re curious, no, it’s not exact’but it’s close. This particular painting of this particular patch of Delaware beach is extremely popular with people who have seen it. It’s pretty popular with me too.
