Hi everybody, below is the last piece from Seasons mini-series:
img_3861 This is “Summer”. Unlike my “Winter” painting, I didn’t have a problem doing this piece. Summer is my favorite time of the year. Summer is so beautiful where I live (Vancouver Island). It is warm to hot with no humidity. And the water is gorgeous:
img_3864 In this detail, I hope you can see the thin layers of water atop the sand. This painting is obviously abstracted~ the water and sand does not look like that where I live, but it feels like that.

The sand and sun is all shimmering gold for me:
In the detail below, I tried to capture the golden light of the sun dancing on the surface of the water:

Here is a skewed shot of from the side:
img_3862You can see by the side shot that this piece is not as thickly built-up as other pieces that I’ve done. This is because the subject matter was very straight forward; I did not have to think long about what “Summer” is for me. When this stage of the painting presented itself, I didn’t want to add A thing. Compared to other paintings in this mini-series, it is the simplest and the fastest piece. But in the end, you have to accept when a painting is done.

I am looking forward to summer and I will try to endure the winter as well as I can. Anyone else feel the same?
