shoreline study

This was painted on a Saturday morning along lake Michigan in Chicago. There were piles of frozen snow and as well as sand. Texture and edges was what I was concentrating on with a palette knife this very windy February morning.
8"x10" oil study ($90.)

Beautiful! And lovely sort of melancholy feel to it; I find it very moving. Excellent job on the looseness in bottom right.

I love this. It doesn't look to me like you had trouble because of the brightness! I especially love the contrast of the fuzzy paint vs. the impasto.
