Beach at Salt Creek - NFS

8/29/10 "Beach at Salt Creek", 8" x 10", Oil
This beach is up on the Olympic Peninsula west of Port Angeles--not on the ocean, but on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, where the water first enters Puget Sound.  It is a much more rugged area than the quiet waters where I live at the very bottom of Puget Sound, which is like a baby's blanket compared to this.  I like this painting because it doesn't mean to be anything other than it is--my experience of the colors that the salt air produced on this day, which was on Friday, when I went there to paint with my friend Jeanne Edwards.



  1. Your colors are lovely. I like seeing your brush strokes, too. Very impressionistic.

  2. Linda--thank you! Sometimes I go out there and feel like I haven't the faintest idea what I am doing--so I just start putting the paint on.
