Hello from Hiway 12

Barrier Island View- 8x20
done on the way up hwy 12 north to nags head from hatteras island ferry(and ocracoke).
the shape to the left is the Bonner bridge at oregon inlet. this is the stretch of hiway 12 that always goes underwater and under sand drifts when theres a hurricane.
i love these warm sand dunes against the hazy atmosphere in the late afternoon. and the phone poles that seem to go off into infinity is an image deeply seated in anyones subconcious thats ever been to the outer banks. this painting just screams OBX!
today is NOT the giveaway day but stay tuned for when i announce it is the day to register to win a Free Painting. even the shipping is free.
