My entry for 2017 is called "Splash". It is oil pigment on a large cradle board. I have always had a passion for being near the water or in the water. My parents affectionately call me their "water rat". This past year I decided to focus my energy on studying large bodies of water. I always bring my landscape lens and camera to the lake or ocean. I have been taking many detail photos of how water moves through out the day and year. I have also been studying a couple of deceased master painters Winslow Homer and Ivan Aivazovsky. My dream is to one day have an installation with several water paintings at Artprize. I am submitting one painting this year "Splash" but I would love to find a venue interested in doing a small room approximately 12'x12' and having three or four large paintings so when you walk into the room you feel like you are at the beach. Maybe even have sand covered floors.
