Ellwood Beach is a very special place for me. It’s situated above Goleta’s beaches in California. The open space with lots of trails and not many people offers serenity like no other. I captured this scene on the bluffs right before sunset.
Discovering these nautical rustic boats huddled together in a secluded cove in Gloucester, Massachusetts, they beckoned me to paint them. I brought these old dilapidated boats back to life with vibrant colors, using artistic license and a bit of my imagination.
