(4) “SEPTEMBER MOON” – Painting by Tom de Walt
Oil on canvas, 36"x46" framed
“I first painted Refugio Beach in the early 1980s. Since then I’ve gone back again and again to the cove with the beautiful light. It remains today one of my favorite places to paint. In this painting, “September Moon” I’m standing near the creek mouth looking down the coast to El Capitan.” –Tom de Walt
For celebrated artist Tom de Walt, a love of nature started when he learned to surf
at a young age. From his deep connection with nature, he began painting landscapes and received early recognition for his modernist tonalism.
