Oceano

Oceano, acrylic/collage on canvas, 24"x 24", ©2008 SOLD!

I completed this painting today. Inspired by thoughts of the ocean: its depth, its power, its mystery. Also inspired by similar thoughts of the cosmos, and a half remembered photo of a really cool fossil. Felt really good working on it, and I love how the colors and the texture turned out. I could stare at it all day.

Oceano, detail

Beautiful paintings. Abstracts are my favorite. I love yours, your colors and textures.

I hope we are not alone in our feelings! I thnk most artists feel that way, at least the ones I know.

Love the whole exploration in a limited color range.. it always makes one dig deeper & therefore produces work like this... beautiful, gwen
