I don’t know about this painting. It makes me angry over and over. It is overworked and, at times feels purposeless. I take comfort in the above quote.
I have entitled this painting “Leaving the beach” It is representing the pain I feel when separated from the ocean. It also represents the balance of many things in the presence and absence of paint and natural materials.
Excerpt from my writings:
No matter how cold, how windy, or how grey, the beach is my life force. Standing, walking, running: the closer to the waves the closer my soul feels to a higher power, to the truth, to the beauty that is within me. Calm peace dance. My life force is in the waves, Leaving the ocean is like leaving a part of my being behind…the farther it gets from me the more immersed in the mires of the world I become. My heart feels sad like saying goodbye to a loved one. Not goodbye but rather see you latter.
