Here is another painting from my recent trip to Homer. Very low tides all that week in Homer!
This was begun in early evening on the spit. The Homer spitis a long, curving, narrow bit of land that stretches 4.5 miles into Kachemak Bay. It's a very distinctive land formation, which has changed much over the years due to exposure to earthquakes, tsunamis, and storms. Today the spit is a wonderful place to walk the beach, camp, view eagles and other seabirds, and have a great meal on the little boardwalk. The view across the bay is always a pleasant sight.
I just returned from my yearly trip to Homer for plein air painting. The weather was overcast on many days, but at dawn the light came in from under the clouds. For this painting, I stood in almost the same place as last year, when I painted Kachemak Dawn #2 (back a few pages on this blog), but the mood is so very different!
