LARGE PLEIN AIR SEASCAPE BY TOM BROWN




“WATCHING THE WAVES ROLL IN”
16x7 inch original oil on canvas

I treated myself to a delicious stroll in the surf when this painting was completed. Nothing is as soothing as foaming surf engulfing your ankles, followed by the unusual feeling of sand being subtracted from beneath your bare feet as the wave washes back out. This is nature’s calming therapy.

It’s easy to spot the tourists. They’re the ones who roll up their jeans before walking in the surf, thinking it will keep them dry. But there’s always a sneaky wave that douses everyone by surprise.

Afterwards I let the warm sun dry my feet, brushed off the sand and went home refreshed and happy. There’s nothing like a day at the ocean.

Find the beauty in the world around you today, and pass the feeling along.

Very nice, Tom! It makes me want to go to the beach. You can do so much with so few strokes!
