  3. Your talent blasted through even at the very beginning! And I see that your love of the ocean and painting powerful waves has lasted all this time!

      Always fantastic to hear from you! I am so happy you like my art! I love just about everything on the planet! The ocean probably is my favorite subject to paint! ( I hate to have favorites!!! Funny huh?) Happy New Year Susan!

    1. Hello Joan!
      Love to hear from you!
      Looking back at this work it makes me realize how long I loved the sea and painting ocean scenes. Maybe growing up across the street from Boston Harbor? I know my mother also loved the ocean! Especially rocky coast of Maine! All the best for the New Year Joan!
