The Art of Joseph La Rocca: The Sea, The Sea

April 30 - May 26

Paintings depicting the power of the sea to engender attraction, provoke feelings of oneness, and all the while retaining the threat over life. I paint the sea, walk along the shore by myself and in the end feel renewed and refreshed. I hope these paintings find a place in the hearts of their audience. ~Joseph La Rocca
