It’s a balmy late November afternoon under the lee of Oregon’s Cape Meares and I have my easel on a cobblestone beach littered with massive chunks of tangled driftwood.
 
The glare of the sun reduces the subject to simple grey shapes. Easy I thought, but not so fast because the Cape’s subtle atmospheric greys are constantly changing, giving rise to doubts as to whether I can get it. Nevertheless, I persevere.
 
Back in the studio, I critically look at my impressions. A few slight adjustments and I’ve got something I like. Best of all, I got to spend a glorious afternoon doing what I have come to love best.
