Belated November Post - Oregon Coast

    Reproduced with liberties from an actual photo that was taken by my my Dad on a trip to Oregon, this painting reflects a somewhat generic view of the typical Oregon coastline, thus the simple name "Oregon Coast". The use of multiple focal points in this painting is what catches my eye more so than the subject matter itself. Notice how your eye is drawn to the large tree on the left foreground while still focusing on the trees atop the rock. Even still, the rock itself makes for a grand focal point in this piece.
