Artist Statement: These paintings are not “marine scapes” so much as portraits of crashing waves, almost like characters in a story,  based on plein-air studies.  I found Norse mythology a rich resource for the names of these different characters


In Norse mythology the sea gods Aegir and Rán preceded all others.  They had 9 daughters who all represented different kinds of waves.  They were:


Bára (or Drönn) – foam flecked wave

Blódughadda – (the one with bloody hair – the color of red sea foam after a battle)

Bylgia - (billow or big wave)

Dúfa – the pitching wave

Himinglaeva – the clear wave that reflects the sky or light

Hefring – The surging wave

Hrönn -  the grasping wave

Kólga – the chilling wave

Unn - wave
