Artist Statement: Sometimes we need an escape from the reality of our daily grind. I did these paintings to bring you into a different environment. The thought of a sea breeze, a smell of an ocean. I hope you can feel the flight of a pelican on an ocean wind,or imagine your life on a boat, right now. Look at the painting and put yourself in it, and escape.
