This week I started what I think will be a series for me, called Night Maps.
The surface is layers of gesso, hide glue, Silks, acrylics and Wax. The surface of the sea is shiny, the land is not.
Wandering the streets of this indigo dreamland makes me happy, and powerful. Creating places to go and places to see, that is mighty.
I added a deep blue ocean. The sea was always close to me growing up, now I dream of it. I watch the sun setting over the Rocky Mountains and know that it is headed to the sea.
â€œfor whatever we lose (like a you or a me) / it’s always ourselves we find in the seaâ€
