Ocean Abstract

 

These abstract, ocean-inspired paintings come from a place of wanting to be one with water.

Immerse yourself in the peace, wonder, and serenity drawn from real-life experiences of flying forward atop waves, deep dives to rest inside of gentle giant clams, and finding safety inside of coral castles at the edge of the teeming, tropical reef.

I created this collection to find and enter into the spirit of freedom. I experience freedom while playing in water. I let freedom wash over me, as if wiping out in a huge wave--surfboard flying, limbs flinging, lungs burning, mind finding that place of calm in which to wait out the storm. I wanted to feel suspended in the power of creativity, in a timeless tube of grace. I painted using my intuition, instead of having an image or a guide to work from.

Creating these paintings allowed me to uncover a sense of wonder, and led me to commune with the sensuality of paint and a conversation with my paintings. Sometimes the conversation went deep, sometimes it was playful. Creating in a series allowed me to explore my subject matter in a focused way, centered around the theme of water. I hope you enjoy these works of water; these works of art!

As I painted, I spoke to the paintings through my brush, and what appeared in the painting was their response to my actions. The paintings "spoke to me" in a way--they showed me what they wanted to be, and I let them unfold as they wished to, as they needed to. I was mindful in each brushstroke, as each color, texture, and brushstroke was carefully placed. I didn't force them to talk, and so, they whispered to me what they wanted to become. 

These paintings were created in oil and painted on canvas. The palette consists mostly of shades of blue, with peach-pink colors for contrast, with an occasional hint of gold or a splash of fire-engine red. When I think about it, they have my personality painted all throughout--mostly cool and calm with a drop of fire for contrast and visual interest and some gold glam thrown in on the lining. 

Immerse yourself in the peace, wonder, and serenity drawn from real-life experiences of flying forward atop waves, deep dives to rest inside of gentle giant clams, and finding safety inside of coral castles at the edge of the teeming, tropical reef.

We drove the windy coastal passes to this gorgeous cove just about every month during ab-season.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI remember free-diving with my dad when I was a teenager, at age 14 or so. We would swim out past the break, and I would get sick and dizzy in the rocking of the swell.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWe arrived at the kelp forest a ways offshore and prepared to dive, with just our breath keeping us alive underwater, no tanks allowed while ab-diving. We tied up our inner-tubes for our catch to the kelp, marking our position.I prepared to dive. Deep breath in, deep breath out, centering myself and expanding my lungs.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI arched my body from the surface and propelled myself downward with my fins. I would swim down, down, down through clouds of sandy water, the kelp forest revealing rocky brown craggs in piles below me. My eyes darted wildly \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003eabout, searching to and fro for the glistening, silver abalone perched on the rocks near the ocean bottom. Every second mattered. Every second my lungs squeezed under the pressure of billions of gallons of water above me and the knowledge that I was swimming in the great, wild, ocean, unprotected and exposed. It was exhilarating. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAs I dove, I could see only a few feet in front of me at a time; that sandy water revealing inch by inch the next thing, and the next thing, as I dove, searching, breathless, and scared. My head pounded from the ice-cold water as it rushed inside my wetsuit hood.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThen I spied an abalone! There, and there, and over there! My heart raced as I calculated which was the largest and oh, if I could only swim down just a little further, maybe I could reach that big one there! But alas, my lungs could handle it no more and I flipped over and bolted to the surface. I broke that quicksilver lid of the ocean surface and gasped for air. My lungs filled with life again and my head felt light from oxygen deprivation. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAfter a short rest, I dove down again and this time, I spied a large silvery beast of an abalone. I grabbed my size gage and measured it. It was large, and so I grabbed my ab-iron and slid it forcefully under the suctioned foot of the abalone. With a quick flick of my wrist, I popped the abalone off of the rock and cradled it in my arms like a wide receiver running the football into the end zone. I did a summersault and peddled my fins as quickly as I could to the surface, this time bubbles leaking out of my smiling mouth and my teeth stinging from the freezing water. Victory tasted like salt water that day. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMy dad grabbed a few more abalone and I did too, and when we met our limit we swam back to the center of the cove and let the powerful mouth of the ocean push us back up onto the sand, with it's great blue tongues; wave by wave. We dragged our tubes onto the sand and rested from our excursion.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLater that night, after we drove the long and windy coastal passes back to our home in Concord, my dad harvested the abalone from their shells. Us kids would always feel around the squishy stomach for pearls, and sometimes we would find them. My dad pounded out the abalone and fried the sweet steaks in bread crumbs, garlic and butter. We feasted and saved the shells as a reminder of the beautiful provision from the universe and from God above: He provided a family full of love, a feast for kings and queens, and a shiny shell full of rainbows to remember all of these special things. \u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2020-12-11T12:45:38-08:00","created_at":"2020-12-11T12:39:48-08:00","vendor":"DOMKO Fine Art","type":"Fine Art Original","tags":["abalone","gray","grey","Ocean Abstract","rainbow","shell"],"price":220000,"price_min":220000,"price_max":220000,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":32984186388541,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Abalone Shell: Home","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":220000,"weight":18144,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/Abalone1.jpg?v=1608099140"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/Abalone1.jpg?v=1608099140","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":8863455641661,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.749,"height":3170,"width":2373,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/Abalone1.jpg?v=1608099140"},"aspect_ratio":0.749,"height":3170,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/Abalone1.jpg?v=1608099140","width":2373}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eSize\u003c\/b\u003e: Original is 36” x 48”\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eMedium:\u003c\/b\u003e Oil on canvas\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eArtist: \u003c\/b\u003eBy Dominique Kongsli\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI remember clearly the trips my family took when I was a child to Fort Ross, CA.

The fish do it and I do it, as a diver searching for pearls. Submerse yourself with me. We will all need to learn how to breathe underwater. Soon we will leave the dryness and enter into communion with our purest form and substance.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBubbles emerge from my mouth as I look out and upward toward the night sky, for this is a night dive. My own breath obscures the stars above, and the surface breaks with evidence of my life escaping toward the atmosphere. Suddenly I gasp, and am comforted by familiar air filling my lungs. How can this be? We've come along way as a human race, and we've adapted to breathing underwater. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA lot of my journey and mental energy, even as I paint, has been about student loan debt and how to alleviate the problems it has caused me in my life. Debt is a monster that most Americans find in their closet, and I found myself in this situation after years of living in financial ignorance, with no financial literacy or education. I exchanged my freedom for big college names and a hope for a future where I would be an automatic success. Well, I learned the hard way, that you pay it all back, with interest. Interesting, right? So I've had to learn to breathe underwater. I've had to learn to survive, to make my way, and to thrive, even as I live underwater. My solution to this problem is to find or make beauty wherever I can, and to live wisely from here on out. That's how I choose to breathe underwater. \u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2019-11-06T18:34:33-08:00","created_at":"2019-11-06T20:21:06-08:00","vendor":"DOMKO","type":"Fine Art

The fish do it and I do it, as a diver searching for pearls. Submerse yourself with me. We will all need to learn how to breathe underwater. Soon we will leave the dryness and enter into communion with our purest form and substance.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBubbles emerge from my mouth as I look out and upward toward the night sky, for this is a night dive. My own breath obscures the stars above, and the surface breaks with evidence of my life escaping toward the atmosphere. Suddenly I gasp, and am comforted by familiar air filling my lungs. How can this be? We've come along way as a human race, and we've adapted to breathing underwater. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA lot of my journey and mental energy, even as I paint, has been about student loan debt and how to alleviate the problems it has caused me in my life. Debt is a monster that most Americans find in their closet, and I found myself in this situation after years of living in financial ignorance, with no financial literacy or education. I exchanged my freedom for big college names and a hope for a future where I would be an automatic success. Well, I learned the hard way, that you pay it all back, with interest. Interesting, right? So I've had to learn to breathe underwater. I've had to learn to survive, to make my way, and to thrive, even as I live underwater. My solution to this problem is to find or make beauty wherever I can, and to live wisely from here on out. That's how I choose to breathe underwater. \u003c\/p\u003e"}

I experience freedom while playing in water. I let freedom wash over me, as if wiping out in a huge wave--surfboard flying, limbs flinging, lungs burning, mind finding that place of calm in which to wait out the storm. I wanted to feel suspended in the power of creativity, in a timeless tube of grace. I painted using my intuition, instead of having an image or a guide to work from.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eCreating these paintings allowed me to uncover a sense of wonder, and led me to commune with the sensuality of paint and a conversation with my paintings. Sometimes the conversation went deep, sometimes it was playful. Creating in a series allowed me to explore my subject matter in a focused way, centered around the theme of water. I hope you enjoy these works of water; these works of art!\u003c\/p\u003e"}

We can only accept it, and treasure it, for it is one of life's greatest wonders and ultimately, one of life's greatest joys. \u003c\/p\u003e"}

I painted using my intuition, instead of having an image or a guide to work from.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eCreating these paintings allowed me to uncover a sense of wonder, and led me to commune with the sensuality of paint and a conversation with my paintings. Sometimes the conversation went deep, sometimes it was playful. Creating in a series allowed me to explore my subject matter in a focused way, centered around the theme of water. I hope you enjoy these works of water; these works of art!\u003c\/p\u003e"}
