About the Painting

Haystack Rock is a unique rock formation off the coast of Oregon. I used to visit Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock when I was a kid, and I remember many long summer days covered in fog and rain. I was lucky enough to capture this vista in mid-summer, when the fog had cleared and the sun was bright and beautiful.

As a side note, I remember first being inspired to have my own gallery when I was twelve years old, and I visited a watercolor artist who had a beautiful gallery overlooking Cannon Beach. I was awed by his huge studio and gallery and fantasized about being like him when I grew up. I was happy to see, when I revisited Cannon Beach a few years ago, that his gallery had grown and was twice the size of when I had seen it as a child!

This painting "Haystack Coast" was done on 3/4" canvas, and the painting will be framed in a gilded plein air frame. The painting arrives ready to hang.
