WORKS FROM THE 2016 RESEARCH CRUISE ON THE R/V PACIFIC STORM
Five Days At Sea
Spending five days surrounded by the ocean on a research vessel provided ample opportunity to observe the ceaseless motion of the waves. Five Days At Sea captures a pattern of movement in each panel, based on a thirty minute period of observing the water each day. The paintings represent what we saw and felt living onboard.
Morning Day Five/Mid-Morning Day Five
Living on the ocean brings the ever-changing appearance of the water into an hourly awareness. What can be seen from shore becomes a sliver when compared to the experience of staring past the side of a boat and seeing nothing but water. I became fascinated by the way light and weather impacted the surface of the waves. Morning Day Five and Mid-Morning Day Five illustrate the way the water changes in appearance rapidly.
