Incoming Storm ~ Bay of Fires

I didn’t participate in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge for January 2017, but I did get a few paintings done in January. This one is for one of my daughters who took a trip to Tasmania in October. She loved this storm coming in over the Bay of Fires, so I tried to capture it for her in this painting.

Bay of Fires

My daughters brought some beautiful photos home from their trip to Australia and Tasmania, and now I get to paint them…

This one is of the Bay of Fires in Tasmania. I love the colors of the ocean and the big granite boulders. At first I thought the name came from the color of the lichen on the rocks, but it was actually named back in the 1700’s by a ship captain who saw the fires of Aboriginal people on the beaches.

I’m working on two more paintings that I’ll share soon. I can’t decide whether or not to do the 30 in 30 Challenge this time around… I guess I only have a couple of days to make up my mind. πŸ™‚
