The series began as a homage to my beloved Gulf of Mexico during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. I needed to remember the Gulf as it had been without the devastation of the event. So I painted my memories of the beautiful gulf waters, the moody skies, and the sugar white beaches. There will 365 paintings in the series, I’ve completed 116 to date.
I am a creation of the deep blue green
it courses through my psyche like blood through my veins.
I learn from it. sustain life from it. It is me and I am it.
witness the joyful delight of a soft summer breeze and think of me,
endure the drama of a harsh winter squall and think of me.
time stands still while it is rushing forward and every grain of sand holds the story of you and me.
moon phase, shifting tides, seasons change and cycle back to when it began.
I am a creation of the deep blue green.
