Sand and More Sand

by on Sep.12, 2014, under Oil Painting, Plein Air

Late last week I wanted to do a small plein air of the beach dunes. After a late morning business visit at Second Street Gallery in Bandon I made an early afternoon stop at nearby Bullards Beach for a bit of painting.

Soon I was to receive a new awareness and respect for sand, wind, and blowing sand! All was not so bad in the beginning, but when ending I found sand was everywhere and any tracks I had made to get to my spot were blown away – thankfully, I didn’t wonder far from the main trail to the beach and its sand dunes & grass.

While gathering up things and returning to the parking lot I discovered my painting had a layer of sand sticking to the oil paint. I couldn’t wipe or tamp for the painting would have smeared. So, I left it with the sand coating. The more I look at it the more I appreciate remembrances of the experience.
