Ready to Hang

I began this piece with three simple things in mind; a limited palette, sky, and sea. Once complete, I sat with the piece to experience it. My thoughts ran the entire gamut from simple observation to the abysmal cliché of the infinite ocean. With heady Right Brain in control, the imagination got heavy, dreamy, otherworldly. For years I’ve observed seascapes daydreaming of the endless oceans, infinite waves, bottomless waters. Then it hit me. An embarrassing slap from the Left Brain made me remember that every sea has its shore, every body of water tops the earth below. The sea is finite, the sky is finite. But the end is the beginning – is the end. Oh cliché!

Wire attached, ready to hang.
Sides painted gray.

I create art as a release, as a vehicle for all the emotions and thoughts that are relevant but don't quite have a place in my common-sense, everyday life. Art allows me to address the irrational, add and subtract colors, work at the pace of ideas, and communicate in the unspoken language of art.
