South Shore Long Island
This is an acrylic painting done on site down by Jones Beach. There is a stretch of narrow beach west of Field 10 that is not populated at all during the week. The wind was a problem, of course, but I was glad I kept it together for a painting of this size (24"x36"), which is a little larger than I usually do on site. I find a tremendous amount of satisfaction being able to go out and find a seculded spot to paint that is usually densely populated. It also makes me feel a sense of accomplishment to finish a painting on-site in the morning hours and still make it home in time to go to work.
