27" x 36" – Oil
I love watching the sea. The waves, which seem to originate from the horizon, build larger and larger. Ultimately, the water crests and topples over producing a wall of onrushing surf. Over my lifetime as an artist, thousands of hours have been spent mesmerized by the sea's eternal rhythm. In this painting, the churning surf is depicted an instant before erupting in an explosion of foam against the unyielding granite shore. Then the whole scene repeats again and again.
