Limantour Beach, a part of the Point Reyes National Seashore, is protected from development by law, and protected from the crowds by a winding and obscure access road. It is a unique ecosystem and a challenging place to paint with winds, tides, light and fog in constant flux.
I tried to go there every day for 30 days. ( I must confess that I missed a few days due to other deadlines). Worikng around my illustration assignments, I went usually very early in the morning or late in the aftternoon when the wind dies enough to keep sand out of the painting. I did over 40 pieces, 16 were keepers and are in the show.
All but two of these pieces were painted in the last week of May through June 25, 2014. All were painted on location. Each painting is an artifact that represents a struggle between my ambition for the piece, the limitations of my own skill, and the meteorological conditions on any given day.
