Before Irene

Oil  "12 x 9"          © Jane Hurd 2011

The path through the dunes grass from the beach to the last boardwalk in Cherry Grove's west end.  This is before Hurricane Irene. In the next painting, you can see where the hurricane came in over the dune and matted down the dune grass. I love the colors created when there is a storm in the distance but the sun is shining in the foreground. These paintings are done on Fire Island, New York.

After Irene

Oil on linen     11"x14"          © Jane Hurd 2011

The path from the beach to the last boardwalk on Cherry Grove, Fire Island's west end. After the hurricane, the dune grass was flattened and the water tore a wide gully through the previously narrow, grass-lined path. (See painting "Before Irene.") This was painted in October around 4:30 - 5:00 p.m.

My first attempt at painting a seascape. This is a small study for a larger work to come. An attempt to show a beautiful sunset on Fire Island.

Fruit with Boxes

I like the playfulness of this painting. The fruit reminds me of juggling balls. I arranged them to suggest juggling motion.

Peeling Orange #2

Painting fast is important because the orange peel shrinks and therefore changes position during painting.
