Abstracts Inspired by the Sea and Warmer Shores

Anyone who knows me well will know I'm pretty much always going on about holidaying in the Maldives - having spent a wonderful 2 weeks on one of the many many Islands about 5 years ago, I long to go back and experience the warmth of the sun on my face in this truly magical place on our planet - I would so often say to myself whilst there ' I am in heaven on earth' and feel feelings of freedom and expansion just knowing that right now I am in the middle of the Indian Ocean, what an amazing feeling that is being away from it all, completely..........and yes, in my mind I go there often and experience all those feelings............anyway, this is what inspires me to paint the sea in the colours I have chosen - beautiful rich blues, turquoise and shimmers of gold and white:

Sea Breeze 90 x 90cm oil on canvas

Into the Dive 60 x 60cm oil on canvas

 I Feel the Energy 76 x 76cm oil on canvas

Across the Sands 100 x 76cm oil on canvas
