Late Afternoon Gulf
Upon discovering this painting in my studio, I thought- Did I paint that? Where and when? It is the Gulf... but Texas, last summer. Aren't cameras among the most amazing inventions? Visual recordings! Imagine trying to share our art and experience, limited to the written word. Through photographs and memories, I owned the brushstrokes and signed the painting. "Late Afternoon Gulf" 11x14, Oil, SOLD.
On the ferry exiting Galveston, I was a sight-seer enjoying the view, and took some home for later as well. ~click pics to enlarge~
