Watery Aqua Sweep


12″ x 12″   sold

This is another in my series of 12″x12″ jetty water encaustic paintings with “Jetty Surge,” “North Jetty Splash,” “Water Wings” and “Watery Swirls.” These paintings are done from reference photos taken in about the same place on the Coquille River jetty.  It is amazing how individual each painting is with the ever changing water movement, light and atmosphere, as well the highly fluid encaustic process.  In “Watery Aqua Sweep” the translucent aqua colored section sweeps through, dividing the rocky splashes and the next wave.

Southern Coos Hospital and Health Center “Art for Health Fundraiser”


These two 10″ x 10″ encaustic on canvas paintings were created for the SCHHC “Art for Health Fundraiser” event to be held November 6, 2016.  They are of the same jetty rock with different wave action surrounding it.  I have a favorite place on Bandon’s south jetty where I can stand and look down and see the action as the waves come in and crash against the rocks.  The first one is titled “Watery Rock” and captures the wave flowing smoothly over the rock before crashing against the jetty.  In the second, “Yellow Rock,” the big wave has not quite yet hit.  The sun painted the rocks yellow and reached through the water to the rocks below.

For a chance to own one of these paintings, just buy a ticket and attend the fundraiser:   http://theworldlink.com/bandon/entertainment/art-for-health-fundraiser-will-benefit-hospital-art-shows/article_6442a37d-2ead-5eea-bcee-349f13614b62.html

North Jetty Splash


12″ x 12″ sold

The waves glittered and splashed along the jetty rocks just west of the Coquille Lighthouse in Bandon, Oregon. The jetty at the Coquille River’s mouth is a great place to get up close to the wave action and to stare down into the water’s depths. And, encaustic is a great medium for capturing the water’s flowing action.
