Welcome to my new collection of oil paintings, inspired by the surf, shore, and sky I've experienced in and near the Atlantic Ocean. Each piece is meticulously rendered, mostly with a palette knife, but also, occasionally with brushes, rags, and fingers. I found surfing a few years ago and my life hasn't been the same since. The ocean has held, for me: calm, challenge, triumph, fear, beauty, and healing. I hope that these paintings might serve the viewer as a reminder of what the ocean has meant to them.
