Wait for Me"

In creating "Wait for Me," I embraced the tranquil chaos of a day at the beach. The sun is high, casting its warm glow on the water as children and adults alike revel in the simple joy of swimming. Capturing a fleeting moment of connection, the essence of summer days where time stands still.

My process begins with a metaphorical leap into the unknown, much like diving into the ocean for the first time. Each brushstroke is deliberate yet intuitive, mimicking the gentle ebb and flow of the waves. The figures you see are characters in a silent play, each with their own story, moving through the water with a grace that only nature can offer.

Focusing on the suns dance on the surface of the water, creates a mosaic of colors and textures. The figures are intentionally minimalistic, almost abstract, reminding you of your own part to play in this scene. The title "Wait for Me" speaks to the universal experience of trying to keep up, of not wanting to miss out on the fun, a sentiment that resonates with anyone who has ever felt the pull of the ocean.

I aim to evoke a sense of nostalgia and a yearning for those simple, unhurried moments. It's a reminder to pause, to breathe, and to savor the beauty that surrounds us, even in the most ordinary of days. Find a piece of your own story within the waves.
