Morning Shore Oil Landscape Painting
When I began working on this, I had the idea of painting a series of mountain ranges, but as I went along, I painted ocean waves and mist and the colors of an early morning before sunrise at the seashore. I love painting misty water and skies full of pale color. For me, there is always something very spiritual and dreamlike about such scenes. I find them calming but also reassuring that as much as our mundane life forces itself into the foreground, the deep mystery of the land and sea is always there, ready to touch us and give us strength.
The original oil painting is 18 x 36"/46 x 91cm on canvas with a traditional .75"/2cm profile.
