Serenity at Sea
16x12 Oil on canvas

Several years ago, I realized my creativity is often affected by changing seasons. Not only will I use different colors according to my surroundings, but subject matter varies, as well. Now that summer is upon us, I am inspired to express the warmth that fills the air. Beach scenes, sunsets, and tropical subjects are in the forefront of my mind. My palette includes more blue, tan, and green tones. The weather definitely has an influence on what I want to develop on canvas.
Art takes us to more places than we will ever visit in a lifetime ~
