The painting support is linen. Linen is used for it's stronger, longer fibers that provide a superior surface for paint. Linen also requires less
water and far fewer pesticides to produce, making linen an environmentally friendly choice. The linen is stretched on wood grown in the
USA, harvested in a sustainable manner. The painting surface is sized with synthetic glue, which is known to be more stable than hide glue. No
animal based sizes or pigments are used.
All pieces are wired with finger friendly,coated wire and are ready to hang.

clouds waves surf beach ocean

atmospheric moody drama
Inspired by a stormy day on the Big Island
in Hawaii at Kaimu beach. Near where
the lava flows into the sea, following the
booming sounds of the waves, I found a
single red clay path cutting through
dramatic obsidian lava formations that
lead to the deserted section of beach.
I learned later, after titling the painting,
that Kaimu means "gathering [at the] sea".
