Coastal abstraction

by Andrea Mulder-Slater

When looking for art inspiration, the sea never disappoints. With tides that rise and fall nearly 30 feet daily, one view can often provide thousands of vignettes. I am always excited by the colors of the coast, and by how the time of year and time of day can change familiar surroundings into unfamiliar ones.

Although my abstract paintings have always been loosely based on nature, I have been thinking for a while about taking a more literal approach.

I produced the first of what I hope to be many images inspired by the rock/water/horizon/sky view near our studio. Here's a little peek at the process - and the product.
