Stone Beach-Saturna *SOLD*

It is exciting to be in the coastal environment during
the low lows. That time of "below minimum" tides.
The sea recedes baring parts of the foreshore
that can only be imagined during normal tides.
Our perspective can be altered
because of the changed sight lines with
the unusual exposure of broad expanses of shoreline.
This painting depicts one such time in late May
near Russell Park on Saturna Island.
Oil on canvas 6 x 8.
Your comments are always welcomed.
"Suddenly, as rare things will, it vanished."
(Robert Browning)

We live in Bates Beach, north of Courtenay, take the beach for granted and then are amazed when we walk and there are ten different types of birds and pink seaweed... and a mauve sunset. These paintings are a wonderful documentary.

Thanks Ron. You right, we all have to stop and take it in, often. Remember to remember.
