I’ve always been inspired by big skies, and in Hawaii, they seem like the biggest. They remind me of the infinite possibilities in this life, and that I can achieve anything.
While driving on the tops of mountains, I dreamed the biggest dreams. Looking out over the ocean, and seeing the endless skies I was reminded of expansion and growth, and that anything is possible.
In these paintings, I used outrageous colours to share my outrageous dreams.
This collection has come together as 11 oil paintings.
It’s got dozens of palm trees.
Wide open, teal blue ocean.
It’s got skies full of pink and orange and the fluffiest, thickest oil paint clouds.
Some pieces are created entirely with a palette knife.
Others share the same photo reference, as I work through the ideas over and over again.
Through all the pieces, one thing remains the same: My dreams are big, and I’m creating them into my reality day by day.
