Original acrylic painting on 3/4" deep stretched canvas, wired and ready to hang.

Cresting was inspired by images of sunlight through water. I love the clarity of color inside a cresting wave, and the visual interest of how the land appears through the water. I see the movement of water as a reminder that the only constant is change. I began this painting with an abstract design of shapes of unequal sizes, filled with color of unequal values. The magenta underpainting was allowed to show through on the left. The opaque passages were added last, and are designed to accentuate the movement of the cresting wave.
