Sun sparkle on moving water has a special hold on me - since I was very young. The ocean certainly but also lakes, rivers, even a puddle!
This was a November day on the Central Coast of California at Avila Beach - where people and dogs can run free! And it is oh so lovely there year-round. The small shapes atop the cliff are RV's which can camp there overlooking this tranquil spot. And you can spot the pier on the left. A magical spot.
This piece is done in oils on birch and the sand is really the clear sealed birch and its natural wood grain as are the tiny highlights throughout (small soft scrapes to the birch) giving it close-up appeal. Wired and ready to hang.
