Inspired by these magic moments when the Southern California morning sun rises above the Pacific Ocean in Venice Beach, Los Angeles...

What is this life for? You don't answer. Your thoughts are offshore. And your eyes stare at me in the dark. Are you scared to be lonely? Everyone has its own path to follow. Reality is no peacekeeper. We were giants only in the morning light. You cannot hide what you aren't anymore, down by the sea. Don't speak a word, listen to the breaking waves. No one calls our ships back to port. Your soul and my heart, as wide and as wavering as the ocean.

“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
~ Mother Teresa

"We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came."
~ John F. Kennedy

This piece is a true LARGE-SIZED PAINTING. For a large-scale, aesthetic and colourful impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message. This painting is for sale as solitaire or as a part of the statement-piece quadriptych DEEP BLUE DAYS DOWN BY THE SEA.

I use exclusively oil and acrylic colors, canvas and solid wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The painting wears my signature on the front and is signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the XL-sides/edges (about 4 cm / 1,6 in wide) are not part of the painting and show the black painted canvas (beautiful contrast). The painting is ready to hang (on the backside: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and doesn’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. The piece will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter as an additional part of the artwork.

Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only. If you have any questions about this painting or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work.

Warm wishes,
Christian
