Description of Boulder at Seaside
Boulder at Seaside is done from a challenge and photo. I am studying seascapes.
This was one of them. I am trying to capture the essence of a wave. They are hard for me but I think I am finally understanding them. Painting is done on a 12″ x 12″ canvas panel.
Pelicans and Seagulls Plein Air
Pelicans and seagulls were done while I was in Port Bolivar. It was as special day as my grandson was painting with me.
We had fun and this boat sat in the bay waiting to be painted. The pelicans and seagulls were everywhere. The painting is signed and framed. It measures 16″ x 12″

New Zealand Waters
by Barbara Haviland in Landscapes
This painting is done in oils on a canvas.
I had some reference photos from New Zealand.I watched a video from the area and then painted.
The history of New Zealand dates back approximately 700 years to when it was discovered and settled by Polynesians, who developed a distinct Māori culture. Like other Pacific cultures, Māori society was centred on kinship links and connection with the land but, unlike them, it was adapted to a cool, temperate environment rather than a warm, tropical one.
The first European explorer known to sight New Zealand was Dutch navigator Abel Tasman on 13 December 1642. He explored and charted the coastline but never landed. Captain James Cook, who reached New Zealand in October 1769 on the first of his three voyages, was the first European explorer to circumnavigate and map New Zealand.
From the late 18th century, the country was regularly visited by explorers and other sailors, missionaries, traders and adventurers. In 1840 the Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the British Crown and various Māori chiefs, bringing New Zealand into the British Empire and giving Māori the same rights as British subjects. However, disputes over the differing translations of the Treaty and settler desire to acquire land from Māori led to the New Zealand Wars from 1843.Posted on November 15, 2019.

This painting was done part of an online workshop. I painted it and was surprised how it came out (almost like being there). I am offering it to you. This is Pounder’s Beach and I have totally re-worked the painting.
