When I was painting â€œ1118. Sun behind Fogâ€ (6â€ x 6â€) I wanted to paint the same scene bigger, long vertical.
I have a 12â€ x 36â€ x1-1/2â€ deep, Gallery Wrap Canvas, that is perfect size for this scene.
When I was painting â€œ1124. Peaceful Fantasyâ€, I became fascinated by lights dancing on waves.
Fog made a quiet peaceful atmosphere and Sun behind fog made a mysterious cheerful mood.
I love this combination.
After I published the blog â€œ1118. Sun behind Fogâ€, I e-mailed Larry to tell about the blog.
Then Larry e-mailed me back:
Yes I did notice your two new paintings of Jug Handle. You have captured the scene perfectly. And Iâ€™m flattered my photo may have contributed to your work. But your Sumi â€œPeace at Jug Handle Beachâ€ that I have in my office downstairs was the inspiration for the photo. I had admired that painting for several years and out of pure luck was driving from Albion to Fort Bragg one November day and the fog suddenly cut the gap and I pulled over into the parking lot and rushed down the steps to the beach. At moments like that we know the sun is there in a pewter sky but we can wait for it and enjoy what the fog brings, Peace at Jug Handle Beach…
His writing is so smooth and charming. I love this kind of collaboration😊❤️.
Iâ€™m very happy to be a painter.
