Moonstone Beach Tide – Cambria Seascape Plein Air Oil Painting by Karen Winters

December 31st, 2010

Moonstone Beach Tide
11 x 14
Oil on linen panel

See more of my Cambria paintings here

This painting was actually completed on location last spring on a paint out with the California Art Club, and due to an overload of work (and probably some forgetfulness on my part) it has been sitting in a dry box waiting to be discovered. In the process of cleaning up and organizing for the holidays I have uncovered more than a few paintings which I’ll be posting over the next few days/week.

This painting of Moonstone Beach was done on a day when it was raining heavily inland in San Luis Obispo. One of our fellow painters, Karl Dempwolf, told us that the beach was clear up in Cambria, so we loaded in the car and headed for the beach. The wind was blowing heavily and my new EasyL easel had to be weighted down to keep from blowing over. It all worked out.

Happy New Year to everyone. We’re staying in and staying safe tonight. It’s a very cold day in So. Cal, which is unusual even for December, so I’m catching up on my record-keeping and looking forward to some TV-watching later. Our kids gave us a beautiful new widescreen TV for Christmas and we’ve been completely entranced with it!

  1. wow karen! this a wonderful painting. i am very fond of seascapes and you sure nailed this one! It’s freezing here in the mountains as well as down at the beach. For sure this has been one chilly winter!

    Keep warm and happy new year!!
