A Soft Seascape
200201 16x20 Oil on Linen
A very simple composition of a seascape. I wanted to create an almost abstract series of shapes that complimented each other and during the "evolution" of the painting, a sort of "sky ocean sand" motif emerged. Sometimes, I follow the painting in which ever direction it seems to go. This painting is a good example of what happens when I let the paint and brush wander. Strangely enough, I nearly abandoned the work when it appeared as though the process had "gone astray." Each painting teaches me something. In this case the lesson was simple. "Don't ever give up on a good canvas. The painting is always there. Sometimes it just takes some time to emerge. Enjoy!!!
