Northern California/Oregon Coast
When the temperature is one hundred degrees plus outside for days on end here in the great central Calif. valley, this is a painting that can cool you down when you look at it (at least in your imagination!). The stormy sky is painted in wet-on-wet right up to the top of the spray. The trees behind the surf, rocks, and foreground waves are painted in wet-on-dry with a touch of exacto knife scraping and picking for some of the water splashing against the rocks.
