I spent many hours thinking and worrying about this painting and finally changed the background just a touch. What I was worrying about was the circular wave almost dead center in the painting. This seems to break many rules of composition, but I like it. What do you think? I suppose time will tell.

Power and Beauty is painted on prepared Strathmore Windpower, with top quality pigments, UV Varnish, signature back and front and comes with a certificate of authenticity. All my paintings purchased between 15 - 31 May 2013 come with a free print of another one of my paintings.

I love the ocean and have spent many hours watching waves. I never learned to surf which I regret. I wonder if my cousin surfed. She lived by the ocean. She died yesterday from what appears to have been a rapid viral infection and she was gone in a couple of days. She wasn't old by today's standards, only 64, but at least she didn't suffer.

It's a strange feeling to lose your oldest cousin, it's an indicator the grim reaper is coming your way. Even more reason to follow my dreams. You never know when your time will be up.
