About this artwork

This was painted plein air on Tomales Bay just north of San Francisco. People have been coming to this location for years to enjoy fresh oysters. It is a scene of a working oyster farm with the special nets scattered along the beach. I was first attracted to the colors, then to the textural variety; the water, the rustic boats, the stacks of nets and the rocky land formation in the distance. There is a narrow unpainted border on all edges of the painting.
