I primarily paint from my own photos. It’s nice to incorporate that into the process of a painting – capturing a moment that strikes me and later painting it. This painting is from a photo I took at my hometown beach of Long Beach, NY.
It’s taken from the angle of one set of jetties, looking towards the next set – the “side.” What I love about this painting is how much it reminds me of Long Beach – the jetty, the color of the water, the surfer, the waves, even the familiar angle – as you cross over the rocks and step onto the next beach.
“Side Surfer” is part of “the Blue Collection” and is available as a Limited Edition Giclee Art Print in my online shop!

your blue collection is quite amazing! I see so much growth in your painting since I began following you quite a while ago. Fun to watch change and growth! 🙂
Thanks Jodi, I really felt it as I continued to paint the beach. Sticking with it really brings results.
Your water is realistic. Just beautiful!!! 🙂
Thank you so much Carol! 😊
