Dotti’s “The Wave”

The Wave
30″ x 30″ acrylic
From the Collection of
Terry & Jay Davison

I had Mom’s painting of The Wave hanging in the front hallway for many years. I love its subdued palette that reminds me of foggy days at the beach. I also love the subtle color changes in the wet sand of the foreground. This painting is truly an example of “less is more”. There is a lot of detail in this deceptively “simple” painting!


Welcome to DaneArt! I’m Dana Richards. I live and paint watercolors in the countryside near Stevenson’s Bridge in Solano County, California. Views of Mount Diablo, walnut orchards and farm scenes constantly inspire me. The birds, insects and animals along nearby Putah Creek and in my backyard pond provide additional sources of inspiration. Over the past year, I have been experimenting with Plein Aire painting with a group of other enthusiasts. My work has been shown locally at the Davis Art Center, the Pence Gallery and in other locations around Sacramento and Woodland. I can be reached at
