Art: Expectations by Artist Carol Thompson

"You go to the beach anticipating an exciting adventure and your 'expectations' are totally fulfilled."

Artist comment:  "Creating titles for my paintings is an ongoing challenge.  How many, after all, 'seascape with rocks' can there be?  And, I am not one to start numbering them, so I need to come up with clever names.  In this case it was not difficult.  I am always 'expecting' the next big wave to crash on the rocks, throwing spray high into the air.  (Hence the name).  I began with the sky, painting it as though there is a storm out at sea.  Then I put in the translucent wave, rolling splashes, and foam patterns on the surface of the sea.  Finally I painted the headland and foreground rock, finishing with the water run-off."
