16 x 48 Oil on Canvas. This beach scape is a semi abstract representation of waves crashing on the sand. Created with a paint application process of using palette knives rather than brushes, this piece has unique texture and tones. It beautifully captures the constant movement, chaos and peacefulness of the ocean.
