Coastal Beach Paintings

Artist’s Notes

When on day trips or beach outings I sometimes travel with my “plein air” supply’s not always though….. sometimes a coastal scene grabs you and you simply take a chance to jot down a quick sketch and some color notes. The notes inform a small study, or sketch and when these are interesting sometimes they become larger works of art, back at the studio.

Large Works of Art

Yes sometimes proportions change or ..I change the color. The paint decides – its called ‘artistic license’. Some artists grid out the canvas and go for an exact replica – that’s OK too – not me, I ….”jump over the hedge and into a bed of crocodiles” – (A teacher of mathematics told me that years ago – my family thought it hilarious and have quoted it to me over and over)

While I learned the calculated approach works better for mathematics – Luckily in painting the spontaneous “go for it” approach allows fun and creativity to grow, its a good attribute – so I say – go with the flow and allow each work to become its own thing.

Coastal Splendor

Music, art and hospitality are clearly at the center of this beautiful southern home. The large scale coastal oil painting “Bring me to the Shore” is by Claire Kendrick.

With a keen eye for scale and proportion and an extraordinary penchant for detail this room illustrates a harmonious blend of high style and sophistication.

Many of Kendrick’s coastal paintings capture moments, walks by the beach, lazy summer weekend spent with friends, those quiet moments of calm and contemplation and others of pure bliss.

Coastal Inspiration

Hello from Florida! Get set for a great summer! I love exploring the coastline and have already had a few glorious weekends in Amelia Island visiting one of my gallery’s Art on Centre. It’s a must see if your in the area and it’s well worth a trip, also try to catch the Saturday morning farmers market every weekend located near the gallery. The Stuffed Garlic Olives are so good in salads or a cocktail if your so inclined. All farm fresh local vendors.

Recently we also explored Georgia’s stunning Jekyll Island and South Carolina’s Hilton Head. I’m so inspired by the beautiful beaches and marshlands in these places that are so close to our home in St. Augustine, Fl.

Plum Gallery in the heart of the historic art district, downtown St Augustine is always my local presence – close to home! Here I showcase new paintings. Exhibitions run for three months, so four times a year there is always new and inspirational works being showcased.

If your in south Florida this summer be sure to visit my gallery representation in Naples, Fl – Gardner Colby Galleries.

Traveling is fun, and this is my first test uploading a post from my phone on the go! I really should have mastered this before now but this is an attempt to make the blog more spontaneous.


The two paintings featured are inspired by my recent travel –
