The Making of a Seascape

The first seascapes involved more paper and color. The paper backgrounds are put in place before adding the sand and shells, etc. The idea of working with and around a mat came with the first deep shadow box. This is how it looked as it began.


Preparing the background


The piece seemed to create itself. The larger stones in the foreground placed outside the confines of the mat, and sand scattered as it fell, as if blown by the wind.

Another project at the beginning stage:


First step, laying down the paper


The finished project:


                                                                                   Sea Wall, 2017


This project was inspired by a point on the seawall at Seaside Park where I often go. I took a picture to help me get started (see below). The twig was the first thing I collected for the piece.





This project is about the beach at low tide.
