THETAWAVES :: Painting Daily


After the dotcom crash, I began to paint seascapes. They were my refuge from the insanity of the high tech world...
I had gone back to school in 1998 to study web design, because that's where all of the graphic design jobs were. By 1999 I was at Oracle doing HTML. But by 2001, the game appeared to be over. Every programmer on the planet was working on Y2K (remember?) and everyone else was building web pages. Then, everything fell off a cliff. Now what? I thought I might as well do some paintings...

I've always loved Marte's artwork. It's got a dreamy, ethereal quality and yet is realistic and expressive all at the same time. Keep painting, Marte!
