An original seascape of sea rocks in the tidal zone and the ocean with a gently crashing wave. This is an oil painting on canvas board. The ocean is one of my favorite subjects, I enjoy painting the colors of the rocks and the ocean with reflections in the wet sand.

This is painted with the very best quality paints and canvas so you can enjoy your painting for a lifetime.

This painting comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Kristen--this IS beautiful!! I am hoping to take another private lesson with you soon.

I quite simply love this, and congratulations on Crowther's critique--so apt: "Olson achieves what makes a landscape painting great: the ability to transcend the static nature of the medium and bring motion out of motionlessness."

In Stone Beach Rocks, Kristen Olson takes a contemplative approach to the beach. She captures the rolling waves, the intensity of their imminent collision with the rocks and shoreline, and the liberating excitement of their constant yet chaotic ebbs and flows in rich impasto that bursts forth from the canvas like the swells crashing on the rocks. This thick application of pigment provides a pleasing three-dimensionality to the canvas and brings the viewer closer to the tactile nature of the beach. Through the layers of paint, we can feel the sand between our toes, the waves lap at our feet, and the feeling of salty aquatic winds against our face. The painterly balance between precision and gesture and what is seen and felt allows a fixed and unmoving image to convey motion and emotion. There is no shortage of landscape paintings, so the buyer must choose wisely. Olson achieves what makes a landscape painting great: the ability to transcend the static nature of the medium and bring motion out of motionlessness.
