The ocean’s mystery is worth pondering. So many lessons in life can be learned as we listen to the waves constantly rolling in or see the relentless work of the forces of water as they change whatever is touched. In this painting, I am portraying a man who is sensitive not only to his surroundings but also to the needs of his children. As these waves come crashing in on the massive rocks without moving them, so life can come crashing in on this family. The problems and cares of this life are like the relentless ocean waves, but even the most serious problems cannot begin to tear this family apart because this man is a safe harbor and a Tower of Strength to those who call him Daddy.
