Mountains and Sea

Ode to Joan 60" x 48" oil on canvas

I have learned in painting (and in life) that I need a certain amount of stability to truly feel liberated. I see that kind of tension when I study the ocean. The horizon looks flat and steady while the waves at my feet are crashing and tumbling about. I also see it in the mountains, they are sturdy and strong but we know that there is so much action and turbulence on the slopes and in the trails.
