This was painted during a happy time when my back yard was literally the Gulf of Mexico. I had the enormous good fortune, thanks to the beneficence of an old school friend from childhood, to be the last inhabitant of a 1951 Paul Rudolph beach house on Siesta Key, Florida (the other west coast). The beautiful old house had been sold and was slated for demolition, but it stood for another 2 years awaiting it’s fate. Living there was a bittersweet experience, and one of the most prolific periods of my life as a painter. My entry is a realistic depiction of one of the 600 or so sunsets that I sketched while sitting in the decaying gazebo, the westward legs of which were lapped by the gentle waves that bathed the tiny white sand beach. I originally called it “The Day I Saw the Blue Stripe”, later shortened to “Bayesse”.
