Acrylic     40”x30”     Gallery Wrapped Canvas

I wanted to go large with this painting of sand and shadows, done from a photo I took on Prince Edward Island. The dunes bordering Cavendish Beach were towering and wild and I wanted to capture some of that. I tried to keep it simple, with just a few main shapes, and I kept the brushstrokes loose to depict the windswept sand and grass. This is one of those paintings that looks so much better from a distance than it does close-up. But I like that quality about it.
