Evening by the Sea
16 X 20, oil on board
Collection of Oprah Winfrey

On a cool winter evening flooded in moonlight with the sound of the surf lapping the shore and the rustle of palm fronds in the breeze, I reached out with my paints to capture this spirit and tranquil beauty of the night along the Palos Verdes Coast. My objective was to capture the moods and spirit of an unspoiled cove through my paintings. Abalone Cove became the theme for a show by the Portuguese Bend Artists Colony in an effort to stop the city of Rancho Palos Verdes from further development within this park and to pass on the beauty of the Palos Verdes Peninsula to future generations through our paintings.
