Seagulls and Stovepipes

"Seagulls and Stovepipes"
11 x 15 inches - Watercolor

I painted this scene while doing a painting demonstration at Dancing Coyote Gallery in Depoe Bay, Oregon. I had been walking on the Lincoln City beach (at Roads End) and was noticing all of the cool chimneys that the beach-side houses sport. And of course while I was checking out the neat chimneys I was also noticing the many seagulls hanging out on the housetops (causing trouble no doubt).

The Life and Times of Seagulls in a Sleepy Coastal Town

Person: So do you as an artist ever worry that you are having way too much fun painting a particular picture?

Artist: Yes, yes I do.

I painted this picture while at "Spring Unveiling" in Cannon Beach a few weeks ago. I did "research" early Saturday morning by wandering around town seeing what kind of mischief seagulls were getting into to give me ideas for my picture.
