The Point, SOLD, 14x18, Oil.
My point of interest? - The little passageway where the palms are clustered near the shore and the water transitions into sky. Within the components of composition, the beauty is in the relationship. Placement of focus and horizon are paramount choices a landscape painter must make to sets up the "visual story", place emphasis.
This painting might be seen as ruff around the edges, or unfinished. There is a certain ruffled surface tension that I didn't want to destroy, so my only "homework" was to sign and frame it.
