Oil painting of the ocean, sky and beach at Normandy, France, as viewed through a German blockhouse window. When travelling to Normandy, France, my impression was of a sky and ocean with the most beautiful and ever-changing light I had ever seen. The light and colors of the sky seemed to skip along the water. Besides the intense light, the sky was ever-changing. One minute it could be raining and the next minute beautiful clouds would build up along the horizon. Using oil paint, I painted this scene on canvas. The painting is signed and dated on the back (1995-1996).
