“Under the waves, she breathes with the ocean.”
I painted this piece in Kona, Hawai’i, using acrylic on canvas.
Down at one of the Kona beaches, you can hike to 40 foot boulders which loom over the ocean. After a short prickly climb through wild brush and loose pebbles, I would sit on my favorite boulder and look into the ocean. One day as I was sitting on in this beautiful spot and meditating, the stillness beneath the crashing waves came over me and I was inspired to create this piece.
Once I started, my mom (in Wisconsin at the time) had a conversation with a clairvoyant friend, who saw an image of me sitting on a rock looking down into green. Neither one of them knew why. (but they do now)
