This contemporary seascape features the bright yellow glare of the sunlit sea played against pleasing blue sky tones. Riding my bike along the Southern California coast, I was struck by the blinding sunlight on the sea, contrasting against the blue sky. Thus, this painting, "Midday Glare", was born. Most of my paintings are inspired by the outdoors and painted in the studio, or they are painted on-site ('en plein air', as the french say). It is painted with high quality oil paint on a solid hand-crafted wood panel. Image wraps around all four sides and eliminates the need for framing. It has a nice substantial look and sculptural feel. Looks excellent hanging alone on a small wall, or for a fun and interesting wall presentation on a large wall, buy multiples and create your own unique wall design.
