The south end of Playa San Pedrito has many interesting rocks and I often walk that beach and then go there to study those forms, the shadows they cast and the play of water on and around them. This is one of my Baja Sur series that I started in November and will end when I go back to rainy Seattle on January 31. Maybe I'll put it in my "One Painting per Month Auction" that will continue through 2012.
The shadow of the rock would be blue -- yes, it's a rock - if it wasn't cast on the sand because the sand there has a lot of gold color in it -- so what do we get when we mix blue and yellow? Yes, a green shadow. The water, as it seeps into the sand and trickles in abstract shapes, is an interesting study in itself, causing patterns in the sand and small, sparkling pools.
