There is so much magnificience in the Ocean. The waves are coming in, the waves are coming in. Oh celestial waves cleanse my soul and make me new. Let me bask in your eternal glory and rejoice in the serenity of your healing waters.
This image was made by taking an abstract composition created with acrylic paints on watercolor paper and scanning it. I then drew the areas represented by the light marks in photoshop. That line drawing was then sent to my Epilogue Laser engraver and engraved it into the original piece of paper. This print is a direct scan of that original image which was only 4.5" x 7.5". It was enlarged to allow for a wider range of print sizes.
When I was done creating this image it reminded me of a Medicine song that's sung in the Santo Daime Ayahuasca tradition titled Om Namah Shivaya.
