I grew up with the ocean as my playground and have always lived by the water ever since. I could spend the whole day just sitting by a rambling river or on a beach with my toes in the sand as I listen and watch the waves crashing. As an artist, I am always drawn to the color palette of the ocean and the way the water reflects the light. Cinne and I both live on the water - but on opposite sides of the country. We share a deep love and appreciation for the ocean and Cinne's picks today showcase how the ocean can indeed inspire the heart and minds of many artists! Ocean orientated, each of her selections embodies a little piece of the big blue seascape - be it color, texture or material. I feel soothed and relaxed just by looking at Cinne's composition and can almost hear the rhythmic call of the ocean in the background.
Artist or not - the ocean touches us all. How does the ocean inspire you?
