Flows to Sea
When I was young we would travel to an area of the local beach that had lagoons that would flow out to the sea with the tides. It was always a place that was fun to play, safely protected from the crashing waves on the beach, shallow enough to build dams, chase little fish and generally have a great time splashing about for hours. I was thinking about those trips as I painted this painting and the idea of water flowing across land and out to sea.
A great deal of my focus is to work freely and expressively, capturing the movement of wind, water, grass and sky - the energy of nature itself applied in appealing brushstrokes and textured paint. The title is a play on words, as our isolation restrictions are easing I am dreaming of when I can next 'flow to sea'.
This painting is on unstretched canvas and will be carefully rolled and shipped in a tube. It can be easily stretched and/or framed by your nearest framer. The size listed (56cm x 56cm) is the painted area of the painting. There is another 8-10cm on each side to allow for wrapping around the wooden stretchers.
