Surrender 🕊 The soft unfinished corners and crispy details around the jewel-like facets on this wave make this one of my favorite paintings.
A different type of wave than I’ve painted before, it is not a clean face, it feels more like an emerald ice cave. I really enjoyed abandoning reality on this one and letting myself free-flow it out.
Surrendering internally is really what this is about. To stop trying to control, to cease resistance and allow the light in, and out.
Inspired by a wave on the Washington State coast, where the Pacific Ocean reaches sandy shores. I have spent hours studying the colors, light and foam at this spot while breathing in the beauty of the coast in solitude ✨
