Monastery Beach, Carmel” is an oil on canvas that’s big—30 by 48 inches. “After months of painting at Monastery Beach during the long first year of the pandemic, I suddenly felt the compulsion to go BIG,” Gafill writes. “This painting was a huge energy rush, and I laughed the whole time I was painting it (usually a good sign!). There is nothing like the joy of creating something with your hands, and the thrill of attempting alla prima plein air painting on this scale.”
