Winged Cat Cave

20″ x 16″

The misty light obscures the ocean and halos the cave edges, transforming the outer rocks into a guardian winged cat. I used oil pastels in this painting to help portray the bizzare rock textures of these Oregon coastal rocks.

Inlet Wave

20″ x 16″

The waves angle as they rush against the rocky inlet, rising to form one last wave before spreading across the sand. Encaustic media works well in capturing the contrast between the transparent water and the dark wet rocks.

Low Tide Sand Pool

18″ x 24″ encaustic on encausticbord

When the sea pulls back at low tide a variety of treasures are exposed. Here, the sea carved out a shallow pool and left the imprint of its ripples in the sand beneath the water.
