Imperial Beach Revisited

I've been to Imperial Beach, CA twice.  The condo I rented sits on the edge of the Pacific facing directly west.  It is a place of spectacular sunsets. I photographed them every evening.  I choose these 4 for seascape paintings  to submit to the Marion Art Center's small works show in December.  I'm working on all 4 at once, usually finding time for 2 a day.  They are all within the 12" requirement.

January 29, Oil on Board, 12" x 6.5"

January 25, Oil on Board, 7" x 12"

Chickadees, 2019

Chickadees, 2019, Oil on Board, 10" x 10"
Black-Capped Chickadees are active, acrobatic, curious, social birds.  They perch in all sorts of positions and will even feed upside down.  They are hardly still long enough to photograph.  This painting is a compilation of photos intended to demonstrate their social behavior as well as their amusing antics.
