Recently my family took a short trip to the Oregon Coast for some R&R. Each day of the trip I planned to paint, and each day, something came up that interfered with my plans. It was cold and windy most of the time.. so we really didn't do the beach, except for the first evening... when we stopped to enjoy the sunset at Pacific City Beach. It was our sons first experience of the beach and it was wonderful. This painting was created from one of the many photos I took as the sun slowly sank into the ocean.
