Painting Prints and photo prints now for sale!!!


A few weeks ago, a friend of mine commissioned me to do some drawings.  For one of them I decided to draw the ocean.  As I was drawing it, I decided that I wanted to paint it too.  So here is the result.

Things I love about the ocean:  The waves, the rocks, the colors, the sand, the shells, the boogie boards and the salty air that makes my hair turn into a big red fro.  God makes everything beautiful, and that makes me happy.  

"I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean

Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens..."
-Lee Ann Womack Song Lyrics

"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
-Tiger's Eye Magazine 1947.
