Oceans First

Updated: Aug 31, 2019

My love for all things ocean is a result of summers spent at the Jersey Shore. "The Sands of Time", a bird's-eye view, uses fluid brushwork and melding colors to represent ocean, inlet and bay surrounding a coastal beach community with mosaic-like bungalows. The title is a nod to both the hourglass shape formed by the inlet as well as the urgency to save our shores. "Rising Sea Levels" is a stylized depiction of the impact of climate change featuring a large vertical wave looming over ocean, bay, inlet and jetty. The jetty rocks are the only solid reference to land and even the sky takes on a watery cast threatening the tiny boat barely visible on the horizon. Bands of color unify the elements and vibrate against each other. You can see both of these paintings at the Belmar Art Council's "Love the Shore - an all media exhibit to honor, reminisce and help preserve the shore we cherish." The opening reception is Saturday, August 17 from 5 - 7:00pm and you can find out more information here.
