Oil Paintings by Stephen Estrada

“for whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it’s always our self we find in the sea.”
Our connection to the sea goes back beyond time. Its moods and rhythms affect our daily lives. For me the ocean has always been a source of solace, mystery and adventure. For many years I have volunteered rebuilding in communities affected by hurricanes that have come ashore in Florida, New Orleans and Puerto Rico. I have intimate knowledge of the ocean’s beauty and its awesome power.
These paintings reflect a lifetime of experiences in and near the sea; sometimes tumultuous, sometimes indescribably tranquil. I hope they convey my sense of awe in the presence of this essential element.
