Breakers at Pawleys Island is a colorful, textural view of the ocean at Pawleys Island in South Carolina. We have been vacationing there for a number of years now and I have done many paintings that were inspired by this beautiful resort. I am especially pleased with the dreamy evening light effect on the water in this piece. I based these beach paintings on photographs that I took.
For this one I took a number of shots from the beach and then I waded in the water with slides on. I got some good shots while the shoes tried to float upward. In the end, the shot from the shore was the one I decided to use. This painting was professionally framed in a beautiful molded, gold stained wooden frame which perfectly offsets the colors. The painting was sold to a great patron in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Prints on paper or canvas of various sizes and greeting cards are still available.

I enjoyed working with Art and Design students. My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and I received many compliments on my course curriculum. Oftentimes I had students that were not enrolled in the class ask me if they could sit in for a class. I have fond memories of those guest students! What a great compliment for me!
