'Morning Gale'

This piece was inspired from a recent plein air
excursion during a morning easterly gale to
Albert Head Park. When the east
winds blow, large breaking waves are hurled onto
the beach and eventually create great swirls and
drifts of foamy sea floss from the constant wave
action. Years ago there was a manned light
station on the point. It is one of the local hot spots
for salmon and halibut fisherman as well many
sea mammals and birds can be observed here.
Oil on canvas 36 x 30.

An exciting painting Jeffrey that depicts the gales blowing over the sea. The sky is really beautiful.

Hi there Jeffrey!.... Action and excitement everywhere on the surface of the canvas here!

The sky is particularly beautiful and really reflects the stormy quality you wanted to capture... as does the curling wave action and foamy shoreline!
A splendid work in every way!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,

Beautiful, Jeffrey! I love those clouds and I keep having to jump back from the waves!
