"Breaking Through" is the first painting in the "Subtle Power" collection. In this series color is limited to just one color beyond the black and white of the sky. The emotion and power of the sea, sky and waves expressed in just one color. I wanted to explore the feeling of hope in the midst of darkness. We are drawn to hope.
