I love the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida Panhandle. The beach is my happy place, and my home. I started to paint this series right after the Deep Water Horizon oil spill incident that devastated the Gulf coast region in 2010. My intention with the series was to share how beautiful it was pre-spill. My need to erase the damage to my beautiful beach was acute. So I painted from memory and emotion. Painted it in all it’s glory, the sun, the sand and the skies. My approach was an intuited painterly style with emphasis on color, movement and moods rather than any level of depiction.
