One of the few out surfing a true longboard day as the waves were quite small. The evening light made for quite a nice cast shadow on the waves a nice surprise.

The light was a key focal point in this scene and having the kids running around was an added bonus. Even though this is an oil painting it does have the look of a watercolor painting. Sometimes I switch brushes to have a certain effect and a good used one fit this perfectly.

I had some beets I picked up from the supermarket since they were different than the ordinary red kind I thought I would have a go at painting them. Here's one of them I thought would make a nice challenge. The hard part was the leaf getting the greens and the veins in. To give a good idea of what I thought would be a good frame here's a Tuscan frame a bit more than the usually ones I recommend but I think it goes well.

This was painted just as the bottles sat except for one bottle the Gamblin bottle on the left which was replaced with a bottle that was about a 1/3 full of Galkyd Lite that had solidified. The other bottles are clockwise starting from the top, my jar of Walnut Oil I use as a medium on occasion. An empty tea bottle and finally Linseed Oil. The blue in the background is a blue bag. Took a while to paint this one and was a joy to finish it up as it all came together.

Along the beach at Freeport, TX a little further up the coast there's a section of sandy road that parallels the beach front and this view is from that area during a really foggy day. You had to be real careful driving as the fogged literally rolled in and swamped the beach front.

"Afta Shave" smells good, cheap, but yeah smells good. This would be good one to hang on the wall in your bathroom area or hallway, but just a suggestion. 


Here's a little fun skit about 'Afta Shave' I wrote, enjoy!!

At Lord Ospuray's Manor in Upper Edinburgh on the eve of the Quartet Ensemble of Bedford who will be performing at the most luxurious Murray Hall. The Lords restroom. Mr. Watson enters as Lord Ospuray finishes his shave.

"May I suggest some after shave my good Sir?" 
"Why quite so, a bit rough shave Watson. Need something to tackle this most dismal shave. Do remind me Watson to put a word with that chap, Hendricks, on sharpening my razor."
"Yes Sir, indeed Sir. How about the Green then Sir?"
"The Green? What happened to the Roget and Gallet!?"
"Oh Sir! Lord Byron was seen buying the Green at the......"
"Lord Byron, you say?!"
"Yes! Yes! The Esso just down the block on the corner. They call it ''Afta Shave', my good sir. They dropped the 'er' and put an 'a' instead. 'Afta,... Shave.'"
"I do say Watson, smashing smell it is, and a plus, no burn. Jolly good!! Quick Watson, we must not waste time the ladies do await. Bring the mini around and..."
"And sir...?"
"I'll be driving this time."
"Oh!..... Indeed Sir! Indeed!"

Late night painting until the wee hours. I've painted a couple paintings in low light situations and I think this one is up there as a good one. Sometimes things catch my eye around the house that I think would make a nice painting and this was one on the list.

Most of Galveston's beach front is, well, a sandy beach. There is a small section along the seawall that turns to a rocky area, large granite stones that are right at the foot of the Seawall. This view isn't to far from that area near the 61st pier.

With the many painting's I've done of surf, there's day's I say to myself "Is there anything more to paint involving just surf"?. Some day's it seems the same, but a day like today got me going again. Here's to some evening surf  at Freeport, Texas. Freeport, by the way, is just south of Galveston. You have to go down a nice stretch of the coast on Galveston Island, cross over a toll bridge over San Luis Pass and then on to Freeport. Freeport's surf tends to be bigger than Galveston do to the deeper waters closer to shore.
