I Am Here, Figurative Oil Painting 24 x 24 woman at the sea, female figure ocean waves

I Am Here
Oil on canvas, 24 x 24 in.
SOLD to a collector in Maryland

I liked the pose of this figure and eventually arrived at the idea of painting a stormy sky and ocean behind her. It's something I'd do if standing at the edge of the sea on a windy day. It's exhilarating to feel the force of the wind on one's body, so long as there's a sense of safety. Woman, wind and water.

Wow, this is a wonderful painting, makes you really feel the wind! Looking forward to the next one.

Marie, this is a powerful picture! Makes me think of a woman realizing her full potential. Owning her power. I imagine you won't have this painting for long.

I just wanted to say thanks for letting me be the one to purchase the 'I'm Here' painting. It's just a great painting. It looks especially interesting today with all of the snow outside. It's funny though, it fits right in even in the winter because the water looks so choppy and cold.

Just took a look at your site to start the New Year off right!.

The ocean - clouds that you can feel - the air surrounding the outstretched arms - WOW! Power bucking power.

I can feel the stormy air and smell the salt. Magnificent!
