Ebb Tide, Mixed media on paper, 15x22
I posted this painting several weeks ago as an abstract seascape. However, it was originally posted with the blue band on the top instead of the bottom. In the meantime I took it to the frame shop for a frame. When I got it home the framer had put the wire on it to hang this way. Since I had signed it vertically they couldn't have known by the signature which way I intended it to hang. I decided that as an abstract it could hang either way and entered it in our art leagues nautical themed show. I was awarded an honorable mention and I had a great time at the reception explaining to people that it was hanging upside down. The show judge saw rather ethereal masts and sails of ships in the painting. What do you see?
- I am a child of God and I believe that Jesus Christ is His Son. My purpose in life is to love Him and others. How He works this out in my life is a personal and individual thing with which I do my best to cooperate. He works through my relationships and my art and His working in my life brings me great joy and peace which I hope to pass on to those around me.
