Waves On Maui

Weekly Featured Painting

I love the drama of the ocean. Waves crashing on the beaches or rocks is so mesmerizing to me. Capturing the ebb and flow of the water on canvas is a fun challenge for me. Sometimes I can get lost in watching the ocean waves and sometimes I can get lost in painting them, as I did with this painting. I really enjoyed recreating this moment in time. The ocean is always moving. Part of the challenge for me is to give the viewer the illusion of moving water. For this painting I decided to focus on a small area instead of the whole scene. This way I could concentrate my efforts on the water as it hit the rocks and eases back out. Notice the water flowing down the rocks in the upper left side. This gives the viewer the illusion that there was a much larger wave that hit the rocks just moments before. This week's featured 11x14 oil painting, "Waves On Maui" is available as well as prints in many sizes and a few products, such as tote bags, throw pillows and note cards. One of these will surely work well for your decorating needs. Thank you for taking the time to view my work.
