I'm really drawn to the abstract in nature. But what I'd like to see in the finished painting is that fine balance between abstraction and realism. In other words I don't want to give all the answers but hope the image is interesting enough/worthy enough, to merit a look that gives you the whole experience.
The ocean is so noisy. I painted this at about 5:30am and could barely hear myself think. Normally I love the early hours for the quiet peace but even though very few people were on the beach it was LOUD. I think the noise is the oceans way of saying, "Look at me and respect me. I'm more than huge. I'm gorgeous, proud, and powerful."
