I discovered the word ‘numinous’ and thought: I must use that to name an ocean-focused painting! Numinous means having a spiritual quality. To me, and I suspect to many, walking a coastal beach always makes me feel connected to nature, to feel uplifted, to feel recharged, and leads to thinking about my place in this miraculous Universe and then to counting my own and our collective blessings in being here.
