Our family beach house has to be one of the most peaceful settings on the Monterey Bay.
Located near Moss Landing, about half way between Santa Cruz and Monterey,
one of those special environments we are blessed to enjoy.
As I get older, I seek out the serenity of this place when ever I can, putting a chair in the sand and watching the waves , getting inspiration for paintings and relaxing. Often we have pods of dolphins and whales that breach, right in front of you. The area in front of our development is pretty private and one can be the ONLY one on the beach at any given moment. There is a wooden runway and stair case going down from the dunes onto the sand below. As the artist, I am able to create a bit more rustic looking staircase. I decided to add some children playing with their dog in the waves and a flock of water birds in flight heading down towards the Monterey peninsula. This painting has been created as a present for my sister's birthday. I hope she will like it. If you have any special places you would like for me to create an artists impression of, contact me through my site at www.tysonart.net and I can do something special for you. Perhaps you would like something already created. Each original painting featured on my site has a suggested price but I am totally willing to entertain any reasonable offer unless the piece is being shown on another site like Laguna Art . Prints on canvas can be created through myself, at approximately 40% less than the original price for a similar size. Sorry for the self promotion, but I have a goal this year of actually selling more of my work to the public. Until next time.. enjoy... John Garland Tyson
