This original painting depicts a choppy ocean sea, and was created with thick textures and metallics to bring the painting to life and to make it appear as if it might spill out of the canvas and into your home.


I wanted this painting to feel suspenseful, yet calming, as if anything could happen and anything could be possible. I also wanted it to be something that you could reflect upon, to inspire creativity and new ideas. Something that would bring waves of ideas into a blank mind.


It is inspired by the bible verses, 1-3 in Genesis, the first few lines of the book.


1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.


Genesis 1-3
