    I've always loved nature! Taking something that already exists so perfectly by God and co-creating with Him to make a painting is of the highest honor. This piece was inspired by our peaceful but roaring ocean. I imagine God to be builder with endless creativity. As He works through me, out came this piece of work created by a brush. As I moved through the canvas grabbing color with my brush I thought of a wave and moved as I thought a wave would. Some strokes flowing and moving with the wave, others are crashing and colliding together. I've spent a lot of my life near the Southern California beaches. It's important to me to bring forth my love of this perfectly created ocean.
