"Atlantic Time"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite

As I was thinking of a title for this new painting, a dozen possibilities came to mind, all of which were lamenting the oil spill - how we now look at our experiences at the beach in a different way, whether it's on the Gulf, Pacific or Atlantic Coast. It's time we cherish - walking on the edge of the earth, staring out into the deep blue waters, enjoying the air, the sounds, the smells. I guess I'd rather my paintings be timeless, a moment captured, without a title defining what once was.

We will endure all that's ahead of us and we will continue to live our lives - embracing those places where we feel peaceful and fortunate - I'm sure of it.

I love the simplicity of this which is countered by the complexity of your comments.

Very well said and painted. You can just keep straining your eyes for that elusive horizon. Yet the blue patch up close keeps drawing back in.
