The sea has been written about extensively and beautifully, so I will content myself with writing about the seascapes.
- I just had to take the vertical multiple-panel format to an extreme!
One of my more romantic interpretations, about the moment --the calmest water reflecting a fabulously lit cloudbank.
- Utter simplicity, sea and sky. The divided frame creates rhythm, one of the big reasons to explore multiple-panel imagery.
"Serene Sea/Quirky Cloud", a very minimalist piece, with two kinds of clouds in the sky.
- A large piece, 20″X60″, and about as bright as I go. The deep reds and almost black of the water on the left provide weight, creating a kind of anchor.
"Exuberant Wave", each panel 30"X24", one of my favorite pieces ever. The divided frame reminds that it is a painting, allowing the viewer to be both in the moment of the wave and in the abstraction of the piece.
- A sunset T-storm seen from Menemsha on Martha’s Vineyard.
- The sun reflected on water is an image that so pulls on the heartstrings that it took me years to even approach it. Now I am finding ways to make it my own, one of them being the divided frame that gives weight to the image.
Phase one of that thunderstormy day on the Vineyard--we watched this one blow in from the second floor porch of our room facing Nantucket Sound.
