I was so excited to finish this piece…….like many of my works it started as a completely different painting……a waterfall, and it never felt finished……I felt stuck with it……I guess because it wasn’t about the falling of emotion, but more about the movement. The ebb and flow of life unfurled. This feels so much like the views I see everyday from my tiny window in the sky. The colors seem this way to me more vibrant and alive, maybe the earth has an aura like people do and I just see it in my own way.
I chose “Imagine” written by John Lennon and performed here by David Archuleta……
A song about opening our hearts and living as one……I think the ocean speaks of that as it comes together with earth…..together they find a way to give and take but still live as one.
Thanks for taking time to view Unfurled.

I am inspired by everything in life.
Nature, landscape, city life and more.
Over 25 years as a flight attendant has let me see life from every angle. On the road my camera and Mac are my constant companions. At home, it’s hard to find me with out a paint brush in hand.
No matter what, as long as I am creating I am content.
Thanks for viewing my work!!

    WOW! This has cool motion to it! Almost like watching a large wave suck in all the water as it grows just before it’s about to pound on the shore! I love the sort of uncurling sense to it! Love it! xx

  • Thanks so much Maxy…..I felt the ocean too…….the wave unfurling. I was thinking of how I see things from the air.

    i love this Elizabeth, love the movement from right to left, reminds me of an ariel image of a coastline with the orange sand, white waves and sea…really atmospheric work x

  • Thank you so much for the lovely comment Andy. I really didn’t feel that it was the coast line until late in the painting and then it started to Unfurl as the title indicates. I was so pleased with how it came out!

    This is wonderful love the colours and tones. Makes me think im a seagull and looking down on the sea touching the beach and the colours are he reflection of a sunset.

  • Thanks so much Karen……I agree that the view of a seagull is so nice to imagine here. I love the feeling of the ocean and it really didn’t reveal it’s self until the last little bit of working on this abstract.
    Thanks again always for your comments:))))xxoo
