Capturing the sound and movement of the waves is an enduring theme for me. I love sleeping with the sound of the sea, the soothing, rhythmic rise and fall that is like an acoustic oasis that washes over us.
In this painting, the cool waves are a series of flicks and random paint marks, created with rhythm and energy. There is something about the fact that the paint is moving when it hits the canvas that gives energy to the sea. I smooth and flick, smooth and flick, over and over again, leaving some of the more beautiful marks to speak for themselves. After a point, the process becomes about the paint, not the sea. I get lost in manipulating paint and canvas with a variety of brushes and tools until I feel that I can hear the sound of the sea in it.
