OCEAN BREEZE 2
Gallery Wrap 60 x 36″
This ethereal ocean painting inspired by a walk on the beach, extremely delicate and light in a way that seems too perfect for this world, breeze flowing through your hair and clothing, illuminated by the late afternoon sun. Feet grounded in the sand, swaying with the breeze, meditating in sync with sounds of the waves and sight of the beach, in awe of the ocean. You are at peace.
This abstract painting brings you to serenity. Coupled with an additional panel, Ocean Breeze 1, the pair can functions as a diptych with dimensions of 60 X 72″. Colors include lively coral with green, ocean blues or turquoise, deep blues with purple and lavender to make a beautiful rainbow of pastel colors.
Framed 40 x 30″
Card Players is part of the “Moments in Time” series. It depicts four boys hanging out on the beach at Ocean City, New Jersey, playing cards and listening to the radio, sometime during the 1950’s. It was inspired by old family photos. Two of the boys are my uncles. It symbolizes a slower, more innocent time, when the most important technology was the family radio.
