Combining en plein air and photographs, I sought to capture my love for the ocean and its immense healing power. Growing up in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and living next to a marina for several years, I encountered either the ocean, or Merrimac River daily. In this piece, I strove to articulate the array of feelings and experiences of water in my life. Inspired by other works and sensual expressions of oil paint, I danced with the painting and created emotion and movement. I embraced the unexpected and ephemeral in “Waves.”
"The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination, and brings eternal joy to the soul." -- Robert Wyland.
