Oceanides is a mythical name for water nymphs. This painting is inspired by the movement of the surf as it nears the shore. That activity of the surf often surprises and delights me as it splashes and sprays, and seems at times to be controlled by some mischievous being. And of course watercolor is the perfect vehicle for painting this uncontrolled activity of water since so much is left up to chance when using this media.
