I painted this originally a couple of years ago. I opened it up again. The Secret Spot Surfshop in Nag's Head North Carolina. I liked the way the pavement feels almost wet. I will probably just wait here until somebody buys this painting.
I have painted this house once before and recalled the story of first European settlers on Hatteras Island. The living was easy on Hatteras island in the 17 and 18th century and with little or nothing to do, except fishing and hang out with the local women and eat yaupon berries for fun. There were no swimming pools or other amenities that today are a must for any savy vacationer. (A hearty bunch.) John White wrote in his accounts about these guys and refereed to them as "Kinnakeeters".
Here is my first go at painting a goat. I took the reference photo for this last June while I was in South Dakota. Proof of authenticity. I am of the mind that referencing rural places gives a bit of authenticy to my animal paintings.
One day I stopped by the New and Improved Jennette's Fishing Pier in Nag's Head. I thought I would get some material to do a painting. This lone seagull was searching for something to eat in the surf. I painted him 3 different times. Here he is.
