Hatteras Sunset

24″ x 36″ Oil on stretched canvas wrap with painted edges

This is a studio painting. I used a friend’s photo for a reference. The photo was taken from Hatteras Island on the outer banks of North Carolina. Hatteras Island offers beautiful sunrises and sunsets. You can see a ferry in the distance.

We were at the beach for a morning walk with our dog.  These boys were having so much fun running and splashing in the surf.  So I took some photos.  This was at Fort Myers Beach in Florida in January.

36″ x 48″ Oil on gallery wrap with painted edges

This is a North Carolina coastal scene.  It is a commission based on a smaller sold painting.  I really enjoyed revisiting this scene and tweaking it to make it work in this larger format.  I hope to paint more commissions.

I have to credit my granddaughter for the photo of her husband and two of her boys at the beach.  It was fun and challenging to paint with my palette knife.
