Nature is Calling!

 11 x 14 Oil on Linen 
Thought I'd take a break from painting florals and still life for a while and attempt a few landscapes. To that aim, above is a small imaginary piece that helped me loosen up.  Still working on a title (Suggestions welcome). Below is the first in a trio of paintings that focus on the beautiful coastline in Norwich, UK.  For this piece, captivated by a sense of majesty, my goal was to highlight the glorious shaft of light breaking through the clouds and reflected in the water.

"The true end of art is not to imitate a fixed material condition,
but to represent a living emotion."
(George Inness)
