Staring at the Sea

Seascape painting called “Staring at the Sea” | 24″x24″ | Oil Encaustic on Ampersand Panel |CJK

May this be a healthy and happy new year for you. I started by clearing the decks of my studio and organizing…..the frenzy was followed by moments of contemplation – Staring at the sea! Never underestimated the necessary time to unplug and go off grid and just be. Creativity needs time alone.

In this seascape painting I wanted to show color in every aspect of the spectrum, even those seemingly dull clouds have a subtle light shifts. A new product for me is the blue fluorescent pure pigment just seen in a small area of this painting. Raw pigment can be mixed with wax and here is is applied thick and heavy onto the panel board.

Artist Notes

Living on the east coast of the United States I look out on the Atlantic Ocean and I’m challenged as an artist to capture its vastness. The stillness and peace of the southern shores is a soothing calm and is both a joy and quest to capture as a plein air and studio painter.

Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity. Observing and painting the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. As a plein air painter there is an urgency and need to capture the essence of your vista – it’s sparked by emotion and energy. Then the atmosphere and weather of the outdoors adds to the paintings aliveness.  It is a love, and a challenge.

Big Surf

52″ X 66″ | Mixed Media | Oil and Oil Pastel on Canvas | CJK

This studio painting was inspired by small plein oil painting. The spontaneity and aliveness is hard to sometimes recreate in the studio and in a large scale — but this one has lots of energy.

Here is the painting again – this time outside – just to give a sense of the proportions!

Wishing everyone a very special 2014!

Water is a universal symbol of change and as we mark the end of one year and the beginning of another it seems fitting to share new works from my Seascape series with you. Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity.  A New Year marks change and optimism and watching the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. Capturing these special moments are my joy and challenge as an artist.

Wishing everyone a very special 2014!
