I wanted to share my latest project, a mixed media painting. Six women, with opal, seashell skin, float with arms extended performing a water appreciation dance. Each has a green dress of a different pattern. Waves of water cross the canvas in horizontal lines. Seven bubbles are scattered throughout the water pattern. The painting was inspired by my participation in Global Water Dances 2021. Colors are values of green, blue, and white. Mixed media on Arches, 140 lb., 18″ x 24”, hot pressed, cotton, watercolor paper.
Pebbles in the sand there are
Round because they’ve come so far.
At this time it feels so free
To be standing at the sea.
The beach stretches far and wide
Ready for the coming tide.
Treasures in the sand you wish
And there it is, one starfish.
