Never Ending Summer!
Depicting the coast at different times of the day has been an ongoing challenge for me - a challenge because the ocean is a temperamental and moody muse; she rarely sits still!
"Bluebird Ocean" was originally 'finished' in 2018 but I was never satisfied with the result. I had it hanging on a wall but there was something off with the rhythm of the waves and the sky wasn't quite right. After months of staring at the painting and identifying problem areas I took action. I toned down some sections and built up other sections to be more harmonious while maintaining the energy and movement that was my original inspiration. I also renamed the painting. "The Ocean Speaks" seems more fitting, capturing both its evolution as well as the subject of the painting.
