Artist's description:

"...Till my soul is full of longing
For the secret of the sea,
And the heart of the great ocean
Sends a thrilling pulse through me. "
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Using this poem as my inspiration I layered maps, hydrographic charts, music and old letters written on tissue paper combined with acrylic paint and medium, applied with palette knives. In most areas of the painting only subtle hints of the collaged pieces remain, there needed to be mystery...and secrets.

The painting is varnished and is professionally framed in a contemporary, white, wooden tray frame.

Materials used:

acrylic paint and medium, music, maps, old letters
