Paintings by the Seawww.ArtPal.com/heelstead71
I was born and raised on the beach in La Jolla, California and at an early age I developed a passion for the salt water---surfing, fishing, diving---which has continued throughout my life. In mid-life I began to explore my natural inclination to draw and paint, although I never had any previous instruction. I began to focus on marine art---boats, seascapes, sea creatures---in both acrylic and oils and find it brings me great joy. I can frequently be found painting onsite near the cove in La Jolla.
