The Ocean Sings The Sky Listens
Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is a painting of the moon rising over the ocean. The waves are crashing onto the beach and the water has cooled off as night envelopes the scene. This painting had originally started out as a sunset. I did not like the sky and decided to transform the entire painting to match the feel of the cool ocean water. Because I already had some of the picture done it was easy to transform the original picture into this scene. As I continue to grow and change as an artist I can see how my work is evolving. When I paint I usually start with a black canvas. This allows the colors to remain rich. I also do not use any thinners. I prefer the thick paint with broad brushstrokes when I create my scenes. Most of the paintings I do come from actual places. I do not like to make my pictures look exactly like what I see. Instead I prefer to take what is seen in nature and manipulate it into the how I see the world around me. Almost all of my paintings have some form of water in them. I really enjoy painting water because there is so much creativity there. Water has the ability to transform the world thru which it travels. It can also change how a picture is viewed. Darker water tends to give the feel of a cooler day. The lighter colored water makes to picture a warmer. I also enjoy doing larger paintings. The larger surface allows me to capture more of the natural scene and gives me more opportunity to explore my own ideas . Because I choose landscapes and seascapes I have an almost unlimited supply of ideas from which to draw upon. I also enjoy the challenge of making each of my paintings look original and different from the others, not following a specific form.
