Afternoon Surf 9" x 12" acrylic

Churning surf stirs up the sand and a plethora of food for this flock of Marbled Godwits. These migrating shorebirds are filling up for their long journey south on the bounty left behind by the sea. The depth created by the different stages of the waves as well as the striking reflections of the birds are what inspired this painting.
