Dutch skys are not renowned for nothing. Many a painters have made the pilgrimage in order to paint the celebrated Dutch skies. Claude Monet from France, Robert Henri from America, just to mention two. It feels good to be back at my favorite spot, on the beach. Even though it was a haphazard weather situation, the wind was cooperating with me in keeping those threatening clouds up and moving. That seagull also appreciated the wind, as it carried her about in a most gracious manner. Love to hear from you, why not drop me a line or two.

Hi Alberto,
The love you have for south beach is palpable on this one! Is your signature subject, and so well executed! You blended skies, sea and the beach in a terrific manner. Fantastic coloring. I love it.
