I love looking at the flowing pools left by the receding tide here on Overstrand beach. This was painted from a photograph I took on a day when there was so much to capture that I couldn't help getting clicker happy. I thought I was going to find painting this easy but I fussed over and over it until deciding when to stop became unbearable. I'm looking forward to having more time to paint after open studios because I know I need the practice. This piece should be dry just in time for the start of open studios this Saturday! This isn't a great photo as there are reflections of light in the brushwork of the foreground.
