The theme of my gallery is ocean waves. I chose these particular pictures because they are the ocean during a storm. These specific paintings stood out to me because they show the detail of the white caps of the water when the waves crash. Additionally, I like the detail of the stormy skies. In some paintings, it's the dark skies that bring out the ocean; the similarities yet the differences between the color of the ocean and the sky really makes the each paining. I also chose stormy waves because I personally love the beach during the storm. Whenever it is raining down the cape, I enjoy going to the beach and seeing the dark clouds hang over the ocean, and like to watch how big the waves can get.
