Night Ocean by Michele Geller

Night Ocean

I just took a vacation to the beach and was inspired by the beauty of the ocean at night. This oil painting is 30"X40" on a gallery 1-3/8" profile canvas.

Enjoy the shapes here--and the contrasts in light and dark. The foam on the waves give great texture. Kat!

Kat, thanks - the picture doesn't do justice to the thickness of the paint in the waves - I'm glad you could see the texture.
