The Ligurian sea is made of acrylic and gold foil on canvas. This painting depicts the many faces of the Ligurian sea. At times, she is calm, and sometimes she is angry and resentful. But regardless of the sea's mood, the sea is a goddess and is beautiful all the time. Joanne spent six months painting this piece, painting each quadrant in different emotions. As a result, you'll see different strokes as different quadrants of the painting evokes a different emotion. The painting though divided, comes together as a whole in the end, much like the emotions of the Ligurian sea.
