I paint many subjects. I paint on location when I travel, such as my recent trip to South Dakota. I just happened to be there for a family reunion and had brought along a portable set of gouache paints (water-based “sketch” paints similar to water color). I also paint tropical wavescapes and tropical locales such as Hawaii and Tahiti.
But because I live in San Diego, I always go back to painting this area, mostly the coast. Our gallery in Solana Beach, CA called Ocean Art is filled with paintings of the San Diego Coast. Many of our collectors want significant (larger) works of their favorite beaches in the area they call home. In fact, it is my goal to fill my gallery with as many depictions of the San Diego coastline as possible. The iconic and the less popular. I want our gallery to be the world headquarters for oil paintings of the San Diego Coast. This area never ceases to inspire me to paint. Good light year round, beautiful beaches, a variety of terrain, interesting foreground, middle and background elements, all make San Diego a memorable subject. If you’re in the market for a San Diego scene or a reproduction on canvas, please drop by and take a look at our gallery.
