Ocean's new collection of medium and large acrylics on canvas, entitled, "Sea Worship", depicts people immersed in their adoration of our universal passion at being at the beach.
"The way everyone becomes enthralled and hypnotized by the sound, the scent, and the movement of the waves is something quite beautiful and unique in our lives, " Ocean said in a recent interview of her artwork. "I love painting images of people caught in that rapturous moment of awe and reverence."
