Halibut Point

Today was a day for painting rocks. I managed to get in two paintings, both quarter sheets and since tomorrow is a travel day I’ll save the other one for then. I painted for the first time at Halibut Point State Park last year and it is one of the most special places in this area. One of the things I notice most when I’m there is the quiet. You can hear the ocean waves breaking in the distance but the only sound you hear at the quarry is the birds — mostly gulls along with a few ducks — along with the odd teenager or two, defying the park rules by jumping off the cliffs into the water.

    Spent a week down there a coupla years ago and Halibut Point and the docks faves. LOVE your Halibut Point pic – absolutely super and JUST LIKE it really is…those sloping quarry sides are incredible. Did you go down to the rocky shoreline there? Well worth it. And also see the miniature fishing boats created out of piles of stone en route? Envy you being there…great 2nd hand bookshops too!

    Love this watercolor! Halibut Point is one of my favorite places on Earth. Do you sell originals or prints of your watercolors, Shari? “The Grout Pile” is another one of your watercolors that I love!
