Sand Fences

6 x 6
oil on Ampersand panel
These little iconic, weather beaten and sun bleached strips of fencing are used to keep sand from reeking havoc with beach front homes and their air conditioners, plumbing, and pools.  To an inland person, they were always a mystery until I Googled it - thank God for Google!  This was taken along the beach at Hilton Head, South Carolina.

I used a bit of palette knife action on this to cut in those fine weeds, especially in the background. 

For purchase information visit my gallery at Daily Paintworks.


  1. Love the pattern and textures in this one! I miss that beautiful white sand! Love it!

  2. Makes you feel like you are there! Love it!

  3. Nice touch on the delicate shadows on the sand!
