Beach Path

5 x 7 oil on hardboard
Just north of the marina at Ocean Shores in Washingtn State is the Ocean Shores Interpretive Center which houses information on the history of the town, the area sealife, birds, and geological information on tsunamis and tidal drift. It is an interesting little place to visit. Behind the Interpretive Center is a dirt road that leads to Gray's Harbor, its rocky shoreline, miles and miles of tide flats, and a brisk wind. The small trees stand witness to the almost constant blowing. Even on calm days, the trees look like they are struggling to stand upright. This painting is my interpretation of the road and one little tree fighting to hold on to the shoreline.
