Gulls on the Beach

Gulls on the Beach
Oil on panel, 7x5
Lake Erie, Ohio - purchase here
The winds were blowing hard as I set up on the beach today - the strongest waves I've see all week.  The sea gulls were dotting the sand, rising and setting with the waves.  Michael grabbed my gear from the car, and picked up a smaller panel for me - so I chose this as my subject du jour.  It was so windy, I sat on my towel, with my easel sitting flat on the ground. Unwelcome side effect - sand blew into my easel, and probably my palette.  THAT will be fun to clean up - or maybe it will be just a little organic pumice.....painting number 948 in 948 days.
