I love the ocean in all its beauty and chaos. It has a way of calming and centering my soul. I love its myriad of blue tones, changing with the light and the weather. I love to watch the incoming tide, the way it meanders over the sand, inching ever closer to the high water mark. I love to walk and swim in the waves as they lap the shore. I am enthralled by the waves as they curl and break in a flurry along the back set, splashing white foam into the air. The sea is always there waiting for my next visit to marvel at its beauty once more, and it will forever inspire my artwork, as it did with this painting.
