Washington Coast Paintings - Fine Art, Ocean Shores, Westport
Inspired by the cold and luminous Pacific Ocean on the Washington Coast 💙 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!
To the sea!
