The basic composition is based on a painting by Bill Alexander called “Steel Lake.” Alexander’s painting, however, was monochrome; mine is in color. While I was painting it, I thought a lot about one of my cousins who loves to hunt. He’s been everywhere, it seems, and I could see him in those hills hunting deer. It was a good thought to have while painting this one.

I love the ocean. It makes me think of God’s nature: ever-expansive, unlimited, eternal. It makes me ponder God’s all-embracing mercy: our sins are like a drop consumed by His love. Not sure this particular seascape says all of that, but I like it — especially the two birds flying in the wind.
