The first is my new painting, Garden of the Sea Gods.  This view of Bandon’s beach reminded me of my earlier paintings, Sacred Rocks and Garden of the Gods painted of those famous rocks near Colorado Springs, Colorado.   The  rock formations  on Bandon’s beach have a similar size and shape and the setting sun gives them a similar red rock appearance.   Bandon’s rock of legend, Face Rock, is in the mist in the background.  It is easy to see how these rocks would inspire people to create art and legends.   All three painting were done in watercolor on Yupo paper.  The Colorado paintings were done in 2007.
