Coastal paintings are always a favorite to paint. My first years of painting I usually painted on location at the beach. Painting on location you can feel the ocean spray in the air, feel the sand at your feet, and create with all your senses. Even when I paint the same scene over and over again they all come out with their own unique colors, and moods of that particular day. Painting the large studio paintings I use the images and inspirations of when I was actually out on location.
