I only had my cheapo phone to record a picture of the waves today. It worked out just fine when I got back in front of the canvas. The cheapo camera was a good reference for the placement of the waves and the colors. I zoomed in on the composition I wanted and penciled it in Then I got to just relax and paint. The blues and greens are so incredible.
Turquoise!!! What a great color. It is everywhere here in the waves...The sun makes it even more incredible.


Today was raining and grey for the most part. I went to the public market and had a nice time talking to artists in booths and a Russian guy who sold me some honey. It is an incredible market. The food is delicious.

I have zeroed in what I like to eat there. I buy a loaf of Lilikoi bread and then a breakfast cookie for two dollars that has carob chips, cranberries, etc etc but no flour or eggs. I am totally hooked and love my Sunday morning treats there. I sit on my little bench and lots of people come by to eat their finds. The chicken tamales looked great.

 I really enjoyed that poetry slam we had here this morning. It got me going!!!

I am fortunate that the waves are not far from my house.  I can go down there for therapy.  I was thinking that all the waves are connected together and yet each one has a special form.  As I was painting I got concerned about the black waves out in the distance that have yet to form...ominous.  The foam splashes on me, cleans me up and sends me back home refreshed.  Painting the waves does a similar cleansing.

I got involved with WAVE RULES.   There are certain ways to paint a wave.  Then you have to break the rules to give yourself over to the passion and uniqueness of it all.  Yes, the rules are nice but if you don't break them the painting is boring.

The seashore is my therapy, too. I don't get there nearly often enough! Your paintings and photographs are another way to be there. So glad you post them!

Now what to paint next.  I was all set to do more turquoise waves.  I was going to do the big scene of where they live but it got boring sooooo fast.  

I worked on this drawing from my phone while I listened to Steve Harvey interview Oprah.  They were so RICH but cool.  I dont know why people with money depress me....people without money do too so there is that.  ha.

I like the above photo of turquoise waves better than this tried and true composition of your basic beach scene.  Choice.  Focus.  What do you want to spend your time doing?

I tell myself these are explosion paintings because the waves do explode...however it feels like cheating.   These are more gentle on my soul that an outright explosion.
