Awake

32 x 29" original oil
sold 

Thank you to a wonderful collector that purchased this piece before it was even dry. I am blessed. 

I chose the title "Awake" for this latest seascape as a metaphor for waking up after a period of darkness. You get to participate and assign the  meaning you're looking for. Perhaps your period of darkness was a small trial that lasted a day, or perhaps for you it symbolizes something much larger that took years or even a lifetime. You can choose what this painting means to you, and what it overcomes.

Gorgeous. I love how the black fades down into brilliant gold. Such a beautiful way to visually depict waking up.
