The ocean, for me, is a source of healing. The sounds and smell of the surf - the feeling completely captivates my soul. A beach is my favorite spot on earth, and watching the breaking of the waves is a complete delight. I see hundreds of shapes and combination of colors in the wave which inspire me to paint. This painting is very textural and includes both high gloss and semi-gloss areas. I like to combine layers of paint to give the work character and depth. This painting was created with a combination of brush and pouring techniques. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.
