Since I moved to Seattle, I've had the chance to paint on location several times over the winter. Because the beaches are so accessible, I've painted mostly seascapes. Even though I went to the beach again today I took a different view, standing with my back to the ocean.

The photo of the painting was taken so that the paint textures would be clearly visible. I signed the painting with a small stick that I found on the beach and sharpened to a dull point.

Here's a shot of the set up:
