Ocean, Sky, Land through Blockhouse Window in Normandy, #1 Cat. No. 331)
Using oil paint, I painted this scene on a 36 inch x 48 inch canvas. The painting is of the ocean, sky and beach at Normandy, France, as viewed through a window in a German blockhouse.
When travelling to Normandy, France, my impression was of a sky and ocean with the most beautiful and ever-changing light I had ever seen. The light and colors of the sky seemed to skip along the water.
Besides the intense light, the sky was ever-changing. One minute it could be raining and the next minute beautiful clouds would build up along the horizon.
The painting is signed and dated on the back (2008).
