Ocean Blues

An artist looking for inspiration will never run out of it, if he'd just look to the ocean:

Maine surfers, painting by Paul Rafferty

"Sans Titre Fond Bleu" 81 x 100 cm, in oil, by my current artist-obsession...the late, great, immortal Nena Saguil (and when i say obsession I mean it! I can't stop researching & reading about her). Her works just mesmerize me & pull me in.  I dream to own 1 of her paintings one day.  

and this one is by my good friend Karina Baluyut, whose love for her craft is always inspiring & infectious for me...

"Water Bearer", Karina Baluyut. For more of her works check out Galerie Francesca (SM Megamall), Galerie Joaquin in (P.Guevara, San Juan) & Galerie Raphael in Serendra.

1 of my favorite Pagudpud photos, eyeing out waves w/ CTL's Nikki dela Paz. 

Siargao 2007 or 08....i'm not sure anymore when I took this...but it was my desktop wallpaper for weeks providing cool eye candy on stressful office days. Oh, all those coooool hues of blues! 

Even 2 out of my 3 boards are white & blue...
early Zambales days

with cousin Isabel, December 2007 (?)

How I would like to spend my honeymoon 1 day (hahaha!), really....

enough blues to inspire an art collection, a fashion collection, 
or the color scheme of an entire house. 
Nature is just so rich & God is just so genius. 

just because of this color palette, you already know there's an ocean outside this room. 
I'm very sure.

perfect twin little guest beds! i am currently coveting that blue retro lamp 

ocean blue swirl even on a salad plate...

Alice in Wonderland in ocean-blue Versace couture

even Chanel can't help it.  Fall 2011 nail polish colors. 

....and that would be enough blue for the week. So I'll end this post w/ 1 of my fave "eye-coolers'...a serene image of aqua, dove, & cerulean blues, broken by a surfer's board 
cutting through the frothy white mush.  
taken at Ilocos Norte by my cousin Charlie S. Gomez

Have an inspired week everyone! :-)
