A couple of decades ago I was reluctant to paint seascapes. It seemed dangerous ground, not because I did not know how to paint one, but because so many hobby painters love this theme. (Along with reclining nudes and children´s portraits.)
And I did not want to be thrown in with the wrong group.
But no topic should be too intimidating nor too banal for a serious painter. In the end it´s what you make of it and I learned that among buyers, there is a taste for both good and bad interpretations. So, who´s to say?
