ABOUT THIS ARTWORK
I started painting the ocean in the late 80's and 90's when I lived on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. After 15 years there, I left and began to paint mountains and trees, always in sync with whatever place I found myself. Perhaps because I live now in Colorado, far away from the ocean, I started to paint water again.
To produce depth of color I use very diluted acrylic in many superimposed layers. I purchase the rights to paint these monster waves from photographers' agents. When I find a beautiful deep green or blue wave, it inspires me to paint it.
