American Society of Marine Artists 16th National Exhibition

I am very excited to announce my painting, “Amazing Grace”, has been accepted to be included in the American Society of Marine Artists 16th National Exhibition


"Amazing Grace"
Oil on Canvas
16” x 24”

Painting for me is a never ending journey of discovery and exploration. I have a fascination with light and movement and love finding new ways convey the message I am after. My goal is to leave an image in someone’s mind long after they have walked away from the painting. This composition fit all of those criteria with its simple color palate, strong contrast and lost edges which work together to create a since of grace and movement.
