17"x20" acrylic


This summer on our annual kayak trip along the coast of Maine, my paddling partner Jay kept waiting for me as I stopped to take pictures from the boat. I looked and looked, trying to see the colors that kept shifting before me in the sky and sea. Our twenty years of being two women traveling island to island, and camping surrounded by ocean inform this painting that I did when I got home. This time in the wild that challenges all our strengths and senses is one of the great gifts of our lives, and expressing this creatively is another.
