Cabo San Lucas – Lands End Mexican Seascape Painting

March 17th, 2009

Cabo San Lucas – Land’s End
24 x 30 inches
oil on canvas
Painted on commission – SOLD

A 16 x 20 version of this painting is still available here.

Today I had the pleasure of packing up this big painting for a new collector in the midwest. I was delighted to be able to paint it for the couple because 1) I love to paint seascapes and 2) it brings me special enjoyment to paint something that has a lot of meaning for the patron.

Lands End is a landmark geologic formation, and it appears that the arches have been carved out by consistent wave action over milennia. I’m guessing that those standing stones once were capped with arches as well, a very long time ago.

Probably the most exciting part of the painting process for me was the painting of the many different rock surfaces, which reflect the color of the environment as well as having their own “local color” which comes from the minerals in the rock as well as the effect of weathering.

Now I’m working on a new commission of the Sierras, while finishing up some rose garden paintings for the Descanso Rose paintout and sale April 18-19. Busy, busy. And I wouldn’t have it any other way!

  1. I recognized those arches right away, wondered if you had been on vacation. I always love the way you handle ocean scenes.

  4. Karen, I love the way the colors glow in this and that wave! The new owners are going to be so happy! There is a lovely quality of light in this painting, a certain time of day. The rocks show it so well. It makes me want to come out to the ocean

  5. In fact, I just heard from the collector and they are very happy with the painting and the collaborative process we went through to create this work. I love painting things that people will treasure.

  6. This is truly magical, I love lands end and often take a trip down there myself once in a while. You’ve captured the shape very well and this must have been low tide as often the water flows through the arches and beyond. Thanks for sharing.
