Sounds Of The Sea, Oil on canvas, 24" x 36" Not For Sale
This painting won First Prize at The TAG Gallery Open Exhibition 2009
I loved painting this big (for me) canvas of figures. It was fun including some small still life scenes at the edges of the scene, and using essentially monochromatic colors. Somehow the idea came to me to paint the standing figure listening to the ocean in a shell. So I made the landscape out the window rural, suggesting that the sea is far away.
