Breathe, Ocean Study, 4x4 Inches, Oil

SOLD

This is kind of a Zen painting.  I stood at the (Horseneck) beach and listened to, and watched the waves come in, and studied all the colors of the water and the sky and the sand... it's another 'baby' painting - one meant for desk-side company.  I love doing these little ones - honestly I've never thought about it, but it's an amazing way to do studies for larger works.  I think, now, I will probably attempt this in a 24x24 format, on board.  I'd like to have a few of these in large scale scattered around my home, to remind me to breathe...

  1. Comment ne pas se sentir bien en admirant cette toile ?... Il y a une telle limpidité et une telle sérénité que oui cela fait du bien...

  2. Oh boy! That water is so beautiful, so inviting. I just want to be standing in the shallows and feel the waves on my ankles and stare out to sea.

  5. Beautiful! I love how the horizon line is diffused. A 24 x 24 version will sure be a breather, but the desk side version is brilliant. :)

  7. To capture our quiet moments is indeed a gift we recieve from painting for only ourselves and our needs. You certainly did this in both of your last post but especially this one. Love it
