Painted on may 11, 2008 at Rodeo beach looking north up the coast line at the first group of rocks that bring the beach to an end. I am happy with this painting! I took my time and wrestled it for a while. As the sun moved the shadows changed. I must of worked non stop for five hours reworking the painting constantly. A Plein Air painter must accept and anticipate change. As the tide rolled in I followed it on my paining. As the shadows grew I followed them. This painting is a painted history of the day. I have a new understanding for Rodeo beach and the ocean. Why is it called True Democracy? The refers to the paint process.
