| "I have since childhood
felt a longing for the ocean and shore which is positively mystical.
Since the mid-70's, I made many trips yearly to paint the California
coastline or particularly the area around the Monterey peninsula,
where 'Carmel Coast' was painted one misty, mysterious day in November.
Every painting I do of the sea is different because the moods of
the sea and sky are never the same." -Rod Goebel
