“I held my breath as we do sometimes to stop time when something wonderful has touched us”~ Mary Oliver
The ocean has a strong pull over me. I am at peace there…grounded and balanced. Palpable, the quiet calm that comes from within.
My memory is often hazy…details of my life tend to mix and melt into something that feels a bit like shadow. My recall is clouded with fragments of memory. But the smallest of seaside moments stick with me. There is utter clarity…It is as if each time the tide retreats, it smooths the layered haze, leaving behind a softness of pure memory and thought…
A pleasure to paint what I love… ~
