Oil on Canvas Painting

Blowing in the Wind is a painting depicting hair blowing in the wind. The reference photo was taken during a boat trip while sightseeing icebergs. I spent the time snapping pictures of the ocean and icebergs, and snapped this one of my daughter. For the painting, I decided to emphasize the flowing forms rather than the details of the hair.

When I showed the painting to my wife, she said her hair looked like octopus tentacles. It was kind of accidental, but appropriate, since much of my art does deal with ocean and coastal life, such as fish, boats and icebergs.

Thanks for visiting!
