Diving right in!


Above is the second layer of paint, where I try to define the wave forms, a step up from the underpainting below. Now the fun begins as I immerse myself in the water, the light, the color, the motion and the forms... I have a faint idea of where I'm headed but hopefully the painting will take on a life of it's own and all I have to do is be open to it.. Just like surfing!

ooooooooooooooooooh! I love the juxtaposition of these two phases. Your work is so stirring, even in raw form. The light in the bottom piece suggests the easing hours of evening, which is a phase in itself. The element of time gives this a whole other dimension to ponder.
