Beach Fire, a Pastel Painting by S. Hutson

Beach Fire

a Pastel Painting by S. Hutson

A man built a fire on the beach and sat watching it.
I noticed him and asked if I could make a painting.
He nodded and stoked the fire.

I made a small painting in about an hour.
I showed it to the man.
He said, “My neck is too big.”

Blues, oranges, ochres, neutrals, bits of white.

Original art: 7″ x 5″
Framed art: 9″ x 7″
