Pebble Beach is a 16"x20" acrylic painting I made of a small section of Pebble Beach out on Block Island. Block Island is an island off the coast of Rhode Island. I have always loved rocks, especially beach stones, which I collected as a child and weighed down my father's pockets with on every trip to the beach. I still pick up beach rocks and bring them home, but not before photographing them in their natural setting to paint later.
My name is Tara Castro. I am a lifelong artist, but have only been painting for the past few years. I find that painting is the artistic medium that lets me put the most feeling into my art. I truly enjoy focusing on details found in nature - examining the ripples that swirl and surround rocks in a small stream, the way the wind catches the leaves on a brisk fall day, how light reflects off a calm, still lake. When I'm not outdoors, hiking, kayaking and searching for my next source of inspiration, you will find me at the easel, paintbrush in hand. Feel free to reach out with any questions or comments, and thank you for checking out my work!
