Emotional Realism — what is it? Ocean Breeze epitomizes this term by its strong color, warm tones, sense of freedom and joy. One can hear the surf and feel the breeze as a young woman lifts her arms to the setting sun of the Pacific Ocean. Or, are we on the opposite coast of North America, and she greets the rising sun of a new day?
Ocean Breeze is available in the following ways:
Fine art makes fine gifts.
Gathering Thoughts — Original Oil Painting on Canvas — 36 x 30 — at Steve Henderson Fine Art.
A young woman, absorbed in her thoughts and dreams, strolls through the ocean’s surf.
Companion to Ocean Breeze, Catching the Breeze follows our young woman as she continues her walk along the beach — toward the setting sun. Youth, life, innocence, joy — the sounds and colors of the sea embrace eternity.
Available through Steve Henderson Fine Art.
As a painter, I love fabric — its fluidity and movement, in conjunction with vibrant color, adds much to the feeling of a work. The young woman stands where surf and sand meet; facing the west and the setting sun, she is unaware of the irony of her exuberant, joyful pose — though she faces the end of the day, she stands at the beginning of hers.

Coastline, by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson
Big movement happens in a small space in the Norwegian Artist’s Coastline, a 5×7 miniature headed to the 33rd Annual Sagebrush Art Festival, January 29 and 30 at the Running Y Ranch and Resort.
