Songs of the Ocean is a collection of paintings crafted from my love of the sea and music.I have always loved sitting with my toes in the sand, fingers running through the water rushing in.
I also grew up in a hymn singing household. I can still hear my grandfather singings many of these hymns. I can visualize fingers plucking the keys on the piano or on the many instruments my boys and I have played. The hymn pages are from vintage hymn books. The feel of paper, especially old paper with worn edges and yellowed textures is part of the story of these paintings.
The paintings are fluid and flow like the waves of the ocean. All of the colors remind me of bright days spent on the beach.
