This print was made from an original oil painting, as were the other lithographs. It was printed in an edition of 1000. I painted this as a sort of tribute to the sea. I grew up near water and have sailed many times in a boat I once had. It is also more from my time on the Northern California coast. I had many good times drinking wine and eating cheese on small beaches below cliffs that abound on the coast north of San Francisco.
Then there was the year I owned a sloop and sailed the USA east coast from New York to Florida but that is a story for another time. [grin]
With the painting I wanted to create an almost uniform pattern to the waves that gives a sense of distance but also a sense of rhythm that I always see when watching waves hitting the shore. I used my "swirly" style to create an almost graphic look. The original was sold some time ago. The print is 9.25 x 20 inches with a white boarder for matting and framing signed and numbered by me. The price is $49.00 each shipped from my studio. To learn more about prints and/or to purchase a print please go to my Limited Edition Print page.
