My family and I recently took a trip to the ocean. Ever since then the sea’s had a grip on me. The day of our outing was sunny and bright, but when I sat down to paint my mood was more subdued so I had a different approach. Sometimes it’s not about painting what you see, but what you FEEL. After the dramatic cloudscapes I did earlier, I found solace in the softer colors of a seascape on a cloudy morning. I like the loose, abstract feel to these paintings.
