Laguna Tide Pool California Impressionist Oil Painting Seascape

Laguna Tide Pool
6 x 8 oil on canvas

This small painting is a study for a larger Laguna seascape, which will probably feature several different rock patterns rather than just the one. It just felt too cluttered to put multiple rocks in such a small painting.

I’m back at the easel, getting ready for other upcoming shows. In a day or two it will be time to start framing again.

    No, please don’t add more rocks in a bigger one – the simple composition of this will translate really well to a large format

    I also like it as it is.

    Do you like the framing part? I think I would be too impatient.

    Yes, I enjoy framing as it’s the final stage of getting a painting dressed up and ready to go to a show. It’s a little tedious and not as much fun as painting, but I don’t mind too much.

    Karen, this is lovely. The motion in the waves is just beautiful
