36" x 48" - Oil on canvas
For years, I have found great inspiration in the energy of the water, rocks and wildlife in the Santa Cruz, CA area where I have a home and studio. “Silent Watchers” is a typical scene along the shore. The Brandt’s Cormorant is a marine bird often found roosting in large groups along the cliffs. They will dive and swim to depths of 50 feet or more while hunting fish.
