Most of you who know me know I love to paint outdoors but of course that isn’t always practical. I’m so lucky to have my studio by the sea. I can actually see a postage stamp view of the water through the glass doors. That’s really important to me, as I can gauge the mood of the sea with just a glance.
Even when I’m working on a painting that isn’t water, I have a very strong sense of where I am in the world. It all goes into the mysterious mix in ways that can’t be analyzed with any certainty. I’m quite sure that if I lived in the middle of the country, or even on the West Coast, I would not be creating the images I make here. Where an artist lives and works is an essential part of the what makes their art unique.
Living at the beach makes me happy and that goes into the paintings!
Until next time,
