My inspiration came from a dream where I was painting en plein air in a beach setting. This series was painted on the beach in my dream and may be interpreted as purely abstract, landscape or waterscape.

I created the work with eco-friendly oil paint with organic semi-precious pigments and textures, natural sand, crushed stone, recycled glass particles, and melted silver leaf on a cradled wood panel with finished white edges. Some areas of silver leaf were burnished to produce more metallic effects. It comes ready to hang.
