Washington Coast Paintings - Fine Art, Ocean Shores, Westport

Washington Coast Fine Art Paintings by Julie Kluh Westport Ocean Shores

Inspired by the cold and luminous Pacific Ocean on the Washington Coast ūüíô I spent the day at Damon Point in Ocean Shores, Washington capturing a big swell on a sunny day¬†of the glorious beauty here.

Ocean Shores is a quiet, remote part of coast where families in Washington go to seek the solitude and abundance of the sea. Often, a cold, wet and foggy place where only a few houses are close to the ocean beach. It seems there is very little art that celebrates this unique coastline. In some places it is low-lying long stretches of sand and land, other places the cliffs rise up to the forest with dynamic and unreal landscapes of the sea.

I am proud to have created this oil painting of the Washington coast that captures the beauty of the ocean that so many of us love to experience.

This is a renewing, fresh, ocean wave with power, grace, light, movement and a shadowy foamy center that feels inviting in it's shadows.

There is a huge amount of life within us, and the ocean seems to display and capture the essence of something I wish to share and remind the world of.


The beautiful greens that seem to be unique to the water in this area is something I love to capture in oil paint. The Washington coast is like a untapped treasure, a place where few live, and even fewer stay very long.

I hope this inspires you to visit!

This painting of the glowing surf is 60" x 40" and is my largest painting yet!

May we all relax and take time to bask in the beauty that is all around us.

To the sea!
