Under the Influence SOLD
I am physically close to the ocean, likely emotionally too. Its ceaseless motion is a constant factor and is influenced by wind and weather. Its colour by light or lack of light. Its sound influenced by the surface of the earth that it rolls its waves over. Sand has a soft sound as the water retreats; pebbles clatter as they tumble with the movement of the wave backwards to its source.
This painting has all those influences in it. An average sized wave making contact with the shoreline, a mix of gravel and sand. Light giving shape and colour and the movement of wind and tides showing the water where to go.
It is 5" x 7" in oil on a canvas panel.
