Tom Wesselamnn Study for Seascape with Cumulus Clouds and Sky, 1991, is a lively abstract representation of a seascape utilizing a simple color palette and bold strokes. Using a minimalist approach, Wesselmann captures the energy of the water against a calming coastal setting. The sky, clouds, water and waves are differentiated in various shades of blue. Shades of green represent the flora on the left portion of the piece and flank the yellow sandy bank  that leads into the ocean in the foreground. The whimsical line work is reminiscent of painterly brush strokes and employs a simplicity that effectively portrays a serene image of the ocean and its surrounding environment. The entirety of the seascape occupies the center of the picture plane, and the white background accentuates the landscape and bold energy of the sea. A pastel palette emphasizes the organic nature of the scene.

Created in 1991, this pencil and liquitex on Bristol board is hand signed and dated in the lower right by Tom Wesselmann (Cincinnati 1931- New York City 2004). This is a unique and original work.
