The late afternoons in Arcadia are never ending, where time comes to a standstill. The waves move but the pattern has no end, and the mind seizes on nothingness and holds it. The colors evoke a sense of all-enveloping warmth that reinforces the idea of finding the magic moment within. The time will come to step away from the picture, but it becomes embedded in the mind's eye. With a moment of stillness it will return, and the peace will return. The sadness is knowing that Arcadia is a place to visit, and that happiness by it's nature requires a contrast to give it value.
That's why we can't stay there.

This is extremelty beautiful and serene. It's makes me feel warm and relaxed like I am at the beach with my toes in the warm sand, listening to the sweet sound of the ocean. I can hear the ocean when I look at this painting.

Once again, you have captured the magnificence of the sea. I only hope to aspire to be as great a painter as you someday.........someday.
