A new oil painting- Sea Foam

I finished this oil painting dyptic (Sea Foam, 11 x 14 each, on wood panel) a couple of days ago, and though I haven’t photographed it properly yet, I wanted to share.

Part of a series on natural flow systems, this piece illustrates in light turquoise the sea foam that roils on top of churning water. In general I’ve used my own emotional/ psychological and spiritual questions and needs to guide which natural design imagery I choose for each work in this series.

I started this piece when I was thinking about flow and connections between people that allow them to create something together (I had a project in mind that was beyond my scope and abilities alone).

I imagine we’re like the foam tumbling through the deep and unknowable current driven forces of our lives and circumstances. We can eventually find each other through a combination of will and chance for a moment to make contact. I guess through painting this I was expressing a hope for this to happen for me.

That was last summer (I seem to work on these paintings in slow time) and the connections appear to be made. Fingers crossed.
