Life often feels like it's tossing us about like a wave in the ocean; tempest seas crashing against rocky shorelines representing the struggles and trials we all often face. You barely recover from one wave when you see another coming...and all you can do is hold on, take a breath and let it crash over you.
I'm reminded though that as much as the ocean is a tempest metaphor, it's also a calming and healing one. There's something so assuring about the coast, especially at first light or dusk. The warmth of the first or last sun that casts light across the foreboding sea, like a giant hug. It becomes a place to calm and quieten your senses, a place in which to let go, exhale, reflect, ponder...a place of renewal. More so, I always find hope at the coast...fresh hope for a new tomorrow.
NB: While every effort is made to capture the true colours and details of my artwork, every screen is different and art viewed online does not do my work justice. Slight differences may be evident between a screen image and the true tone of my work which is more vivid and beautiful in reality. Scale may also be slightly off due to the insitu art app used, so please ensure you measure your space. Thank you!
