The Story Behind the Art:
During the summertime, I enjoy visiting Santa Cruz. Generally my family and I spend the day at the beach, explore nearby tide pools, visit the shops and walk along the boardwalk. In addition, we love watching the sunsets. With ocean sunsets, the sunlight reflects over the ocean like a rainbow cascaded in an array of mottled sequence. I had used the pointillism painting technique to capture the sunlight reflecting on the ocean waters by using a very fine-tipped paint brush. The painting "Ocean Sunset" is based off of a photo I took of the sun setting over the ocean at a beach off of West-Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz, California.
