Windswept Evergreens on Whiffin Spit


This painting was originally created as a plein aire one November day on Whiffin Spit. Since then I created this studio version of the same scene. I wanted to capture and share with the viewer, the raw changing features of a November day on the west coast. The weak sunlight from the south west contrasting with the dark clouds seems to add to the drama of the perpetually wind bent trees.

This is a 9" by 12" oil painting on canvas. No longer Available
