About this Painting
When the Sea Met the Sky features our group of friends as the sun sets behind them and the sky grows heavy with a pending storm cloud. The horizon is lost at the point where the sea meets the sky. They look out to sea, watching the waves, the sunlight. The view is magnetic. They are experiencing the elements of nature, so strong with such potential force. What is going to happen?.
This painting is about the closeness of our friends and family. When we come together and experience the elements of nature that captivate and stimulate our senses. These are the moments that we remember, that become part of our souls.
In new work for 2019, I continue to explore the gestures and stances of people. How they convey their emotions, conversations, intensity through the stance and gestures. These are painted using broad brush strokes in a semi-abstract way. There is not much detail in the actual people of these paintings and it’s not necessary because you can read them from their body language, their shapes, the angle of the head.
