New Painting - Underwater

I've been working on a new painting called Dreaming - The Beginning of It All... While I've had a specific vision around what it should look like, the painting itself seems to have a path of it's own. Underwater is one of these alternate paths. It bears no resemblance to what 'Beginning' will ultimately look like, but it turned up during the process.

I like it for many reasons; it reminds me of the Caribbean, one of my favorite places in the whole wide world; it also evokes struggle and challenge, which there always seems to be some of that, and yet at the same time, a calm and peace.

I will continue to work on 'Dreaming' but maybe there are metaphysical forces guiding the process...

As always, let me know what you think!

  1. It is truly beautiful. It evokes in me a sense of what life is like. Life can be little blurry, as if you are looking at it underwater. Even through the blurry moments you see the beauty all around you. The beauty comes in so many forms, friends, children, a smile from a stranger, a star filled sky, or a peaceful sunrise. Very often you do feel as if you are dreaming....Great start to another series.
