I’ve started a new series of paintings from a storm off of Scituate’s coast late this winter. I was really drawn to the movement and frenzy of the water. This series is also getting me to work a bit larger than I have in a while, this piece, Turmoil, is 17×24″ and I’m working on some bigger pieces since the start of this. I wanted to use the acrylic layers to really build the waves, the foam, the spray… where some parts are very crisp and others are hazed by the mist of the turning ocean.

The piece is framed in custom routed acrylic which enables you to see the layers but also allows light to enter from all sides of the piece.
I’m excited to work more in this vein, there’s something about the tension and range of movement that I’m really drawn to.
PS- I’m working on a new site dedicated to gallery work, stay tuned!
