Boogie Boarders-8x10-oil on c.b

This one's at Seatree Gallery

painted this in the motel this morning waiting for the sun to come out. it was almost noon before it did. the wind outside most of the day was howling but i managed to stay behind a wall on the first outdoor painting, and a bulldozer on the second. finally on the third, a little 6x8 of a boat in wanchese the wind started to calm down around 5.

the knife keeps this piece looking like light is bouncing all around, like it does on the beach in the middle of the day.

its weird, i tried painting one today with a brush and it felt weird. just goes to show that you can get used to anything and it be second-nature the longer you do it. i'd have never imagined i could work a knife better than a brush today.
