Lazy Days

Yesterday was hot and steamy.  There's only one place to be on such a day:  Ocean Point.  It was low tide, and I knew that when the tide turned it would bring a cool sea breeze.  Several other people had decided the same thing, and were basking in the sun, enjoying the sights of sailboats just off the coast.  That seemed to be what the day was about, so I decided to depict that.

In painting landscapes I often try to determine what the day is about.  That requires some personal reflection and reaction.  Stop, look and listen.  Something will surely call to you, and it's not always the first or most obvious element.
