EmaBee Inspiration: Maryland Beach Art

The ocean is a great place for art inspiration – the textures and colors, and sensual connection with the earth. The sound of the waves crashing, the smell of the salty air, the breeze and sun on your skin, cool and gritty sand between your toes, feeling the crashing of the waves on the beach in your chest, the tides and the moon, the strange creatures that emerge from the foam. Artists have been mesmerized by the mysteries of the ocean for centuries.

The following are wonderful, simple paintings of the fauna of the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay in the Maryland area. I love the simplicity and texture of these paintings on display at a beach house in Ocean City, Maryland.
