Painting the Ocean
I lived around the Pacific Ocean and Gulf of Mexico for most of my childhood and adult life so I do love the ocean and listening to the soothing roar of waves and the sound of water rushing around my feet as I walk the beaches. Now that I live in Ohio, I do miss the ocean, and so does my wife. I wanted to create a large painting of a typical scene of a Pacific coast beach, so I began my quest to do so. The painting I'm currently working on is a large 48" by 36" oil painting on panel. This painting will be a gift to my beautiful wife. I wanted to chronicle my journey with this painting on my new website and blog. So here goes! Some say that a blank canvas is a scary sight, however, I have taught myself not to see it that way but instead as an entry point to an exciting journey! So, here goes the journey!
