The companion piece to Ocean Breeze, Catching the Breeze (30 x 36 original oil on canvas) follows the young woman on her journey down the beach and through life itself. Again, the irony of the figure -- at the beginning of her life and still formulating the dreams that will take her into adulthood -- walks toward the setting sun.
Such is life, with its ironies, its mysteries, its puzzlement, its joy and its sorrow intertwined. There is a peace, joy, and innocence in this piece that captures life's sweetness and poignancy.
I am always delighted to chat with artists and collectors, and invite you to contact me through my website at Steve Henderson Fine Art.
