Wave studies

For a December small works show at Arts on Douglas in New Smyrna. Opens next Saturday, unfortunately it opens at the same time as our McRae Art Studios opening so I can't go. I love doing these wave paintings.. the waves connect with my soul. Ironically I've missed 3 weeks of beautiful surf because of work, travel and holidays... but there will be more. This is one of 3 small paintings, 8x8 on a gold leafed cradled art box (8x8x3). Though you can only catch glimpses of it at the edge of the painting. Did the gilding myself. I'm ready to join the Gilders Guild. Change my name to Gilda Van Guilder.

You might notice how the direction of the stroke helps define the form of the shape. And how edge variation helps to let the eye move more freely through the form.
