Ocean of The Sky 12x36
Ocean of The Sky 12×36 Abstract Oil Painting

Ocean of The Sky was inspired by softly glowing waves of clouds. As they glided over the Rocky Mountains, they resembled an ethereal ocean. It was an unforgettable sight.

I started this painting by thinning down oil paint to the point where it almost blends like watercolors. I then used compressed air to guide the under painting.

Then I painted over that, making sure to let some of the under painting show through. The interplay of colors creates a sense of movement and immediacy that keeps the painting fresh.

The painting process I use lends itself to creating organic forms, which I then tighten up with structural lines. This free-form technique mirrors the larger theme of my work: the hard edges of our structured world contrasted against the organic forms of the natural world.

I created this abstract painting using archival-grade oil paint and natural non-toxic solvent on luxuriously thick, inch and a half deep gallery wrapped canvas. The edges are painted, so the piece is ready to hang unframed. $850
