Do you see shadows, hints of depth, and layers of color….Deep, rich, smoldering color….. rose, blue, purple, green?
Behind the opaque pale clouds lie deep blue magentas, a life lived, and experiences felt.
Love, loss, joy, all leave a mark; adding a new color, a layering of humanity and a life of memories. The marks left through these experiences make up who we are. Comprise great stories and become our deeply layered legacy.
Each layer we come closer to the whole, a full circle, completeness, contentment.
An understanding that nature can teach us so much.
The reflection of trees, and sky in the water are softened from the reality above. Becoming a looking glass to see things differently. Letting us bask in a sanctuary of acceptance, and understanding that nature can teach us so much.
It’s all there for us to witness, Beneath the Blue.
It’s all here, Beneath the Blue.
This Collection is inspired by my time near the sea, walking the bird sanctuary, feeling the light and watching the awe inspiring sunsets of Cape May. As with all my painting I not just paint what I see, but more importantly paint what I feel while taking in these glorious natural sights.
Several of the works are mixed media on handmade paper, the hand torn deckled edge integrates an organic layer with the subject it supports. Other pieces are pastel on sanded paper.
Thank you for sharing my appreciation of this magical place.
