Be prepared to be mesmerized by this almost realistic and hypnotically beautiful collection of oceanic abstract paintings by super talented New York-based artist Samantha Keely Smith.

The collection of landscape paintings has such a strong and fluid aura about them, that you'll feel yourself swaying on the high seas as you look through them.

Taking after the swirling waters and rough waves of the ocean, the oceanic abstract paintings are created using oil paint, enamel and shellac, which the artist layers in such a crafty way.

"My images are not at all real places or even inspired by real places. They are emotional and psychological places.The tidal pull and power of the ocean makes sense to me in terms of expressing these things," says Smith.
