Evening Paddle
 
I was on a paddle board when I took the reference photo for this piece off Pleasure Point in Santa Cruz. The painting is sized to work well in hallways and other nooks around the house -- a calming surprise when you round a corner.

3:45 pm
 
I spend a lot of time watching ocean waves. One afternoon before a storm, the sky put on an incredible show with some really cool clouds. There wasn't any wind and, though it was afternoon, the sky had a sunset feel.

Big Sur
 
I was hanging out on the beach during the summer of 2008 when we experienced some crazy thunderstorms. It was surreal: 90-degree weather and thunderstorms. These same storms lit fires all across California, including Big Sur.

Sometimes the water in other places of the world strikes me as looking a lot as it does here in Santa Cruz. This painting could be of a scene in Santa Cruz, but it's actually another in the New Zealand series.

Black's Evening
 
This is one painting out of a triptych series. The other two paintings are from the same place, but one in the morning and the other mid-day. I've always found it interesting how the shadows on the cliff change throughout the day and time of year.
