“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” ~ Rumi

I love the different shades of blue in this abstract painting and I invite you to let the colour flood you with good feelings. They say that blue relates to self expression, speech, communication and the ability to communicate our needs and requirements. It feels calming, relaxing and healing. Do you see water in this artwork? I love the sea, hence the title I have given this creation, inspired by Rumi of course. Whenever I swim in the sea I am aware that I am in contact with an element that hugs the entire world.

To make this abstract painting I used some of my favourite blue oil paints. I wanted to keep the tones as pure as possible, and therefore I chose only 4 colours. I placed the paint sparingly so as to leave the canvas showing through in parts. This gives a translucent hue that I adore.
