Boiler Bay is named for the remains of a ship’s boiler visible at low tide. They are the remnants of the freighter, which was wrecked off this point in 1910.
This painting is part of the Oregon Coast Trail series. This series explores the entire coastline of Oregon. Painted from the photos of Pete Miller, who did all the hiking too! (Go Pete!)
I enjoy this piece because it shows the beauty of a rugged coastline (my favorite kind) and the beauty of when the forest comes down to meet the ocean. I had so much fun painting the waves – quick brushstrokes, fun little rocks. I hope you enjoy it to.
