A beautiful day at Fort Wetherill continues as I change location to look out towards the Castle Hill lighthouse. Using a big brush from the start kept this loose as I tried to make sense of the rocks, the water, the sky of this September day.

This is my latest efforts in finishing this painting. A lovely linen canvas didn't prevent the struggle of resolving the sand! I added some foreground shapes to create a little more tension and ambiguity and broke up the sand with flat shapes, really scraping down the lower edge of the canvas. I think it's finished. This has been a tough one to resolve for me.
Feels so good to be back in the studio (2 days in a row!) after my knee replacement surgery 8 weeks ago. I've been obsessed with rehab and getting back to walking, biking, etc. It's sooo good!
