"Stroll AT Waimea Bay"
12" x 16" Acrylic on canvas
This is a scene painted from photographs taken on a previous trip to Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. The water was calm in this painting and the lifeguard boat was placed behind the lifeguard station at that time; they move the boat to a different location now and then. Below is a photo I took this past Friday similar to this scene in the painting.
The lifeguard boat was in front of the lifeguard station this past Friday and the bottom photo gives you an idea of how high the surf was then. It was suppose to peak at 18 to 22 feet that day. The lifeguards had to keep announcing to the public that it was not safe to swim and that there were rip currents. The waves were just awesome and I must go to some other beaches on the North Shore again real soon.
Yesterday I began two small seascapes so please return again soon .
