The Wild and Beautiful – Indian Ocean

indian ocean photos,

In breathtaking indigo, cobalt, ultramarine blues and turquoise, the Indian Ocean captivates.

A wild tempest, lashing cyclones off the shores of Western Australia one day;  a sweet kitten the next.

So wild. So beautiful.

Beautiful Ocean


With a myriad of faces and a dazzling display of hues,  the Indian Ocean has me content in artist paradise.




Creative Inspirations


For insight, into my art  image I thought I’d share some of my thoughts.

Some of the creative and artistic  processes, images, feelings, that were going on at the time.


I was inspired in this creation,  Four Faces of the Indian Ocean by a number of things:







They each –  played a subtle role, influencing me.

Their faces filtering in as I reinterpreted my adventures along,  The Wild and Beautiful Indian Ocean.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

  1. I remember being impressed by the layers of colour the first time I saw the Mediterranean. We don’t have those layers in our northern waters. Seems like you have even more than the Mediterranean does.

    1. I can’t remember skies like this… layers, in Seattle, come to think of it. Next time I go back to visit, I’ll go on a cloud hunt though!! thanks Annali 🙂


  2. I too love the sounds of the Oceans. When I got a chance once to visit the beach, I took a video with sound of the lashing waves. Then whenever I feel tired and want to go on a holiday (but can’t, because of Vindictive Boss) I listen to the video. It actually makes me feel that I am on the beach, The sound of the waves are so harmonious.
    Lucky you are a painter. You can see the painting every day.
