Biography from Visions Fine Art Gallery:
The other subject offers the artist the beauty, drama, and breathtaking power." With that statement, Clyde Owes directed his artistic efforts towards capturing the moods, colors and unending movements of the sea.  Illustrative of a life-long affinity for the sea, Mr. Owes' work reflects an extraordinary visual insight beyond that of most seascape artists.

Following four years in the United States Navy, he returned to the Hollywood Art Center.  Although he did landscapes and sports subjects, it was quickly apparent that seascapes were both his and his collectors' main interest.  For more than thirty years, he captured the turbulent and the serene sea; the crashing waves and the gentle breakers; the blue, the grey and the green waters of a never-ending scene.  His sunsets are just as they appear out of his studio window on the beautiful Central Coast shoreline.

In 1995, he entered the National Park Service Art competition, and out of 2400 national artists, he not only was included in the final 100, but received the prestigious Judges Award.

Clyde was a member of the International Society of Marine Painters, and Oil Painters of America and was shown in many art shows under their sponsorship as well as many local and state art exhibitions. In his words, "the final reward is knowing my efforts have produced a painting that someone can stand back and say, 'Yes! That is the sea. That's how it looks and feels."
