This collection was created in my home studio during our Covid-19 quarantine. During the pandemic the Florida Keys closed to tourists and left an empty island and ocean of locals only. I will not lie... It was so nice to see the islands like this and enjoy the slow traffic... but of course we missed all of our visitors and were happy to welcome them back to our beautiful islands.
We spent much of our quarantine on the ocean, fishing and exploring. It was so empty... we could go miles and miles without seeing a single boat, we could fish the reef all day and see no one. I've always been drawn to the blues and teals of our Florida Keys waters, but during quarantine the empty oceans surrounded us and I found so much inspiration in the colors and movements of the sea. I knew I NEEDED to bring this feeling to the easel and share it with you all.
I hope these paintings bring you as much happiness as they brought me while creating this collection.
