La Playa

Oil on 6x9 panel, painted en plein air, Mexico.
My first in the series Abstract in Mexico and the only one in the series that was actually painted on location. I went out with Stock and Roberto to paint on the beach for our upcoming exhibit at Xaltemba. This was a very long secluded beach, it felt kind of spooky and lonely, as I set up to paint I realized I had nothing to offer in the traditional sense of plein air painting, it really was not going to happen that way and yet the urge to create was there so I began to paint- with enthusiasm, this felt right and all I was interpreting could be captured in abstract form. This was a true beginning for me.
