    Description

    Driftwood and beach scenes are my favorite subjects to paint. I do a lot of kayaking and this is one scene I stumbled upon in February of 2012. I decided to add two crows since there are always crows in this area and everywhere around this island. This is the back side view of the island of Sandy Point. The Nature Conservancy of Canada has now proclaimed this island a bird sanctuary. It used to be the busiest place on Newfoundland's west coast. Many Americans stopped over to Sandy Point when they were stationed in Stephenville when they had their American base set up during world war II . No humans live there anymore and all have relocated to another area across the bay in St. George's, Barachois Brook and Stephenville Crossing, Newfoundland. The last two left the island in 1973. This island has been an inspiration for my work for many, many years. All that's left are weathered breakwaters, graveyards,  and many beach remnants, but lots of birds and some wildlife.

    Are you kidding me?

    Needs more work and discipline. Keep painting but learn foreshortening and composition skills. Skies run from back to front and front to back.....not top to bottom. I'm not preaching, I'm just educating.

    PATTERNS, ETC

    I love the light in this piece. Watercolor is such a beautiful medium when executed properly like this. Kudos to Chris on this piece. Love the folding of cloth with the black and white pattern. Great job!

    Those Gleams

    These mandarins look good enough to peel and eat and the gleams make them highly realistic. Against the colorful quilt, they just pop!

    Magical

    Very unique. I like it the more I look at it. I am very intrigued by the fact it's glow-in-the-dark

    I love the way you created the sense of distance in this painting. Depicting the horizon line on a slight curve is very effective!
