When the Ocean Paused for me.

Acrylic Painting by Flora Doehler 24″ x 30″ $800.

Imagine sitting on an island in the Bay of Fundy, perched high on a rocky cliff. Below you waves crash against rocks, eroding the edge of the island just a little more.
I sat there in the summer of 2012 with my painting gear and looked out to see a still strip of water, calm and illuminated in all that commotion. That is where this painting was born.
The ocean was ever changing that day. First misty-foggy, then cloudy and then for a brief interval, a few clouds parted and the ocean became smooth like glass in one spot. A reflection appeared like a mirage. And then it was gone.
