The Ocean Moods

"Watching over", 8 by 10 inches oil on canvas board

"Morning drill", 8 by 10 inches oil on canvas board
 
"Early Waves", 5 by 7 inches oil on masonite board
 
"The day begins", 5 by 7 inches oil on masonite board
 
Just in the mood for some ocean. The first two were done from my trip to the pacific coast. The last two were done closing my photo album and opening my imagination ! Hope you enjoy! Here is what the gull probably is saying :-)
 
Standing alone I watch
The waves eternal and infinite
I can't decide
If it is tranquility
Or chaos.

  1. Beautifully painted, for me they can never chaos, only tranquility always.

  3. Oh wow, Padmaja! These are so good! EAch of them expresses a different mood and feeling. The water is full of life and movement, and the depth that you've portrayed in each one is amazing to me! Congratulations on this beautiful compilation of art! I also admire the way you did two of them from your photos, and then two from your own memories. :)

  4. Stunning pieces, Padmaja! I love each and everyone of them. You so skillfully managed moss on rocks, the water is stunning and I'm absolutely in love with the green morning light. Green is my favorite color and I find myself unable to tear my eyes away from that gorgeous green ocean view. Totally in love with it! And thank you for your always wonderful and kind words to me.

  8. What more and new can I add to the praises in the foregoing comments except that your imagination is equally admirable as the real?
    The captivating verse at the end left me speechless like the gull

  10. These are all wonderful and beautiful. It's almost the end of summer here and I've yet to be to the beach. I was just thinking about that today when I checked your website and voila! Ocean's a plenty.

    I can feel the salt of the sea and like that you did 4 very different paintings.

  15. It's been way too long since I visited - these are gorgeous and I especially find the green one so striking. I was recently visiting up near Avila Beach, Morro Bay, Pismo, SLO, all those areas. I love it up there. I need to do a catch up soon on all your paintings.

  16. I really enjoy enlarging and looking at the texture in the top two paintings, Padmaja. It's as though your brush willed those waves to move. Beautiful energy. That green painting takes me somewhere spiritual and reminds me there is more than just what I see, here. The last one is warm and peaceful. Thank you for sharing these.
