I created this piece to welcome the warm weather of Summer that will soon be upon us.
My inspiration for this piece is the beautiful Atlantic ocean and coastal waterways of the region. I am blessed to see the ocean everyday. This piece invokes a sense of calm and depicts the sometimes serene nature of water.
This is a simple piece, acrylic on canvas. Molding paste creates a fun texture for the sandy coastline. I really like the point of view in this painting, it's kind of dreamy; is that a stairway of water leading to the sky? Or are we flying and turning at an angle? There's no one else on the beach, let's head that way.
I create art as a release, as a vehicle for all the emotions and thoughts that are relevant but don't quite have a place in my common-sense, everyday life. Art allows me to address the irrational, add and subtract colors, work at the pace of ideas, and communicate in the unspoken language of art.
