Winter Cloud Wave 12 x 12 oil on panel
Have you ever noticed similarities in ways that puffy cumulous clouds and waves look? Both have rounded soft edges that are molded creating depth and space. They often share similar colors: mounds of soft glowing white and delicate lavender gray shadows.
Waves and clouds are both made of water in different forms. Liquid waves explode with a super charged energy spurting skyward and then tumbling down. You can feel another movement as the wind blows against the face of the wave dispersing foam into thin wisps and fine mist. Watch a wave in any season and it brings you into a action packed exhilarating moment.
Winter waves remind me that the ocean is powerful beyond anything that man can control. I’m thinking about the gentle days of Spring and Summer ahead and how we will want to jump into that very same ocean.
All the best to you and Happy New Year 2018 – hoping it will bring wonderful new ideas, plans and moments!
