Sunspot - Goolwa Beach wins award

Sunspot - Goolwa Beach has just won Outstanding Acrylic in the International Bold Brush Painting competition -

Goolwa Beach is such a wide expanse, that a large painting of it is needed to do it justice.
While a rainstorm approaches, shafts of sunlight hit the sandhills as if some giant in the sky is searching the landscape with a torch.
Of course, even with the impending storm, beach walkers take in the amazing sights.
Sunspot - Goolwa Beach - acrylic on canvas - 150x75cm
$4950 availabe at the Victor Harbor Rotary Art Show - Jan 2012
Prints of various sizes and greeting cards of this painting available here

Two yachts - Seacliff

At the end of the day's racing there is a flurry of dismantling and putting away of boats at Seacliff.
I could see that those who sailed the boats on the sea were also expert at beach duties too!
