The Need to Escape

The urge to get away from the pressures of daily life seems more intense than ever right now. Do you feel it too?


With the COVID-19 pandemic being poorly managed in the United States, many of us are left with few options for a getaway. On the bright side, we are exploring our local parks, hiking trails, lakes and rivers more than ever before. But for me, the truest form of release is found walking along a beach. There's nothing like the sea air and the sound of the waves lapping at the shore.


Thankfully, we have some options for visiting local-ish beaches in the mid-Atlantic region this summer. We are watching reports of COVID-19 breakouts carefully to see if it will be safe for us to return there before the warm weather ends.


This year I will be expanding my collection of beach-inspired landscape paintings, as I feel more drawn to the seashore than ever. A couple are already in the works, and I can't wait to share them with you. For now, here is an abstract seascape I created earlier this year.


"New Day" is 20x20in on gallery wrapped canvas, and it is wired and ready to hang. View it in detail in my shop by clicking here.
