I’ve been lured. By the sirens of the sea.
Glorious deep ultramarine blue with a whisper of violet you have to know is there to really see.
And then, there is my magnificent so enticing, cobalt teal blue.
I’ve been to the sea. The Indian Ocean, and she wants me again.
i walked the sands
played for awhile upon the shiny damp salted shores
i gazed into the sculptures she made
those sea forms that rose, created from sea foam
exquisite in shape and form and loveliness
i sat for a fleeting afternoon
warmed upon the dunes
i shot a thousand shots
to try, to capture that millisecond
that transcendent moment in time
i left the bewitching tempestuous seas
returning home nearly wrung dry
i painted the immersion of what i felt
and all the while
that deep tapping, that inner knowing
the sea sirens of ultramarine and cobalt teal blues
would lure me back
I will finish with the second half in the next post.
In that post you’ll see my creations from the sea, in painting form …. abstract style, in oils.
