"Ocean separates lands, not souls." - Munia Khan
My moody seascapes are inspired by my visits to the Northern California Pacific coast (favorites are Bodega Bay, Stinson Beach, Carmel, Monterey, Sea Ranch, Mendocino, San Francisco, Point Reyes, etc.....)
This seascape painting painting is made with quality acrylic paint and gesso on a 16" x 20" x .75" tightly-stretched canvas, then finished with 2 coats of UV protective satin varnish, signed and wired so it's ready to hung.
When I need some creative inspiration, I head to the beach and plop my feet in the sand, watching wave after wave roll onto the sand. Something in the mist from the sea fills my Soul with with ideas, and I reluctantly leave, returning home.
My art has been described as “abstract narrative” and is visual poetry, influenced by nature and life experiences. I mainly use acrylic paints, gesso, graphite and gel mediums to add textures with organic forms onto the canvas or wood surface. Each layer is a like a new chapter in life, building thoughts and memories into a unique and personal story. I began making art at a very early age and always assumed I'd be an artist when I grew up. I majored in art and business but landed in the real estate field instead. There I worked with architects, designers and contractors and was able to create lobby art for many of my projects. Today I am a full-time artist who occasionally consults with my real estate clients which helps pay the bills, and I love to create abstracts, seascapes, simple still life paintings, and occasionally cityscapes and house paintings as a tribute to my long stint in the real estate industry.
