Some of you are probably tiring of this ocean series, but I've gotten really into it and need to see it through.

Besides, temps are rising into the triple digits this week. Doesn't a day at the beach sound pretty good?

Don't stop- beautiful work, Don! Enjoyed your comment about Cast Away on the previous post- so spot on. And your ability to evoke that sound in these little paintings is impressive.

An excellent painting.

I'm not tiring of the series. I lived in Hawaii for six years, and spent many hours at the beach, and I can look at scenes like these forever. Well done, Don.

Don Gray said...

Deborah that's really a nice compliment--thanks! I've been enjoying your recent landscapes.

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Onpainting.

Don Gray said...

I appreciate it, Bill.

Nope, we aren't getting tired of the series at all. Every one is a gem, I'm breathing the ocean air with these paintings! Thanks.

I love the atmosphere of this one, Don. It looks like a storm is either approaching, or has just gone over. There is an enduring fascination about the ocean, and I for one never tire of well-done paintings of it. I can almost smell the salt in the air - in fact, I think it will be seafood for supper tonight! :-) Thanks for the inspiration.

Nel, glad you get that feel from them--makes my day!

Don Gray said...

Hi Joanne,
Thanks for those supportive words. Glad you came by.

Don Gray said...

Hi Silvina and thanks.

Got up to 104 in some parts of western OR, I heard. High 90's here on the east side. Usually it gets warmer here than westside. I can handle it, though. I'm acclimated after living in SoCal :)

Don Gray said...

Thanks so much, Lu.

Don Gray said...

Jeff, I appreciate your comment, thanks for the visit. You do very fine work.

Don your ocean series is popular as it should be. I am always a fan of gray dominant color schemes and you have delivered that color like a champ. The brush work shows the level of skill and understanding of the subject. Composition and value range also enjoying those heights.

Don Gray said...

Many thanks, Bill. I always value your opinions highly.

This one with the dark sky is very cool Don.
Sorry it is so hot up there.

This series is great!

Don Gray said...

Hi Frank--thanks so much. We had a nice cooling thunderstorm--much better now.
