Passionate Waves

2017 | Oil on canvas, 36 X 48

(Sold to private collector)


While making this last painting of 2017, my eyes were filled with tears and my heart felt heavy. My father never saw any of my works but always believed I'll be an artist one day.
With his memories, I take the legacy forward. I'm sure he is always with me in spirit and I can feel his presence all around me.

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.

With great force and passion, the wave sets out,
Driven by forces unknown to it ;

To repeat its task in complete surrender

All of the Sky is a stage for the dancing clouds. Such joy they bring to the eyes which gaze, forming shapes that constantly change.

I felt like a floating ballerina as I painted, joining the clouds in their performance.

Through the dark clouds, sunlight pours
Setting aglow the field's rows.
A little girl from the window watches,
As rays of light overpower the darkness.

Greatly inspired by the works of Monet, I enjoy capturing the appearance of the sea under the light of the sun.

The sea and the sky look like colors being mixed on a palette. The swirl of colors make you wonder if the sun is rising or setting.

In and out of sight, he played in the grass.Just before sunset, as I called him back home, he did not respond. I looked for him and called out but came no reply… I sat on the grass watching the sunset, waiting for him to come back …….
