If you own a sailboat and you’ve always wanted to ply the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), you’re in for a new experience. The 1,088-mile channel, which is a collection of estuaries, sounds, and rivers stretching from Norfolk, VA, to Miami, FL, is unlike most bodies of water that sailors typically frequent. – Spinsheet

Tell me that you love me

60×60 | oil and wax

This large scale abstract painting was inspired by a small plein air study. When working on such a large scale painting there is an importance to bring attention to a strong composition. Setting the horizon line low lets the sky do lots of work bringing movement, one wave boldly painted adds to create  drama. On this scale I enjoy pushing the boundry’s these large paintings demand paint and energy and sometimes an apparently simple composition works well.
