Note: I attempted to capture the movement of the water and sky as they come together. There is so much power in the movements of the waves. Standing on a shore, I know I have felt the pull of the water. There is no wonder that mariners often thought of the waves as Sirens, luring them into the depths of the ocean. Art and music have have captured these seemingly mystical sounds. Who can listen to the opening chords of Wagner’s opera “The Flying Dutchman” (Der Fliegende Hollånder) without getting chills, or be held captive viewing one of the English painter J.M.W. Turner’s oils depicting the ocean.
This was one of those paintings that just came together. When it was done, I knew it was done.
