Leo Carrillo beach is six miles from my house in Malibu. I have spent countless hours there painting, walking my dogs, or just relaxing. Having observed the majestic way that marine life synchronizes itself with the ocean, I am ever on the lookout for a scene that captures that harmony. The seagull lifts his wing and turns to follow the surf; the last rays of the sun dance off of the crest of the wave and the tip of his wing simultaneously. It is a beautiful dance.
This painting was featured in the California Art Club Signature Member Show at the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, CA, which opened on Saturday, March 12, 2011.
