Oil on canvas board
5 x 7 inch
Outer reefs, off Pacific Ocean islands, concentrate the power of deep ocean swells as they rise quickly out of deep-sea trenches and explode on shallow coral encrusted reefs. This is a memory of one such wave I encountered in Samoa.
Part of the 57 waves project, 57 waves painted on canvas boards that measure 5 x 7 inches. Working in oils, I aim to capture these exquisite moments where that wave energy is finally spent upon the shore.
