Piece description from the artist
This is not just a painting of a wave, it's a creative portal inviting you to experience the magnificence of the ocean and the power and beauty in everything. Let yourself dive in, breathe, let go… be alive! 🙌
I just finished this Washington coast wave. I just love these colors, backlit waves in the afternoon sun, green Pacific Ocean water (cold!!) glowing like a jewel.
Oil painter Julie Kluh lived on her sailboat traveling the world for a decade. Having spent so much time at sea, she was continuously inspired and moved by the beauty of the ocean. With a deep soul calling to paint she returned to land to share her gift and experience in vibrant color.
Julie's art captures the movement and light within and beyond the human form reflected in the ever-changing ocean. She captures the power, harmony, and aliveness felt in the natural environment of living water that relates to so many of us.
Julie studied art at the University of Washington and now resides in Olympia, WA where she paints from her bay-side studio.
Julie has developed her own unique visual style and fused it with a distinctly peaceful nuance. Her paintings invite us to dive in and feel the essence of what unites us.
