THREE PAINTERS THREE VISIONS EARLY VIEW
"Coastal Sunrise" 24" x 20" oil/linen
This piece came from the Coastal Paintout held
each fall in Port Aransas. If you're willing to get up
while its still dark, drive through the local Whataburger
to pick up a couple of taquitos (a flour tortilla with egg
and cheese inside..yummy) and coffee then drive to
your predetermined painting location you might just
be lucky enough to get a sunrise like this one.
Like a good trooper I diligently got up every morning
for five mornings while it was still dark, drove through
the same Whataburger for five straight mornings and
in the process downed ten toquitos and 10 cups of coffee.
Four of those mornings I came up empty with no sunrise
to speak of. But on the fifth morning...low and behold...
there it was in all its glory and suddenly everything
just felt right with the world.
This painting will be available at Riverbend Fine Art
on April 30th when the three-man show featuring me,
Qiang Huang and Bob Rohm opens.
