Sea Scape Commision – ‘We find in the sea’


I recently completed a new commission art piece for a client in America. They had a great connection and love for the ocean, they wanted an abstract painting based around this theme. After discussions and research with the client there were aspects which they wanted the piece to reflect, a morning lit beach before the sun was up but also with a slightly darker mood. The colour palette also needed to be mutual and include pale blues, greys and creams to fit in with the home interior. The piece was a large format painting which was 4ft x 4ft…

While producing the piece and working with the client we both agreed it would be great to find suitable inspiration for the name and description. I have a real passion for the poet E.E Cummings and thought one of his works would fit perfectly – The poem is called ‘We find in the sea’ – For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it’s always ourselves we find in the sea.

It was a great pleasure to work on this painting for such a special couple and family, very touched, please do get in touch if you would like to discuss any commission pieces.
