My sisters and I have a special place where we walk along the Port Royal Sound in South Carolina. It's beautiful and never the same...always a surprise of water, sand, sky and birds. I've always loved sand patterns but thought I would do a series of my abstracted interpretation of the designs that happen on the edge of the water. Shell bits and sea-things making patterns in the wet sand...something you would miss if you are only looking up. The intense sunset is reflected onto the wet sand and everything sparkles.
"Fire Water" is a tapestry-style mixed media canvas with printmaking, acrylic paint and metallic. The edges are glued behind and the painting is suspended from a wood/bronze rubbed picture molding. You may choose to traditionally frame the canvas if you wish. I like displaying my work loosely as I believe it is easier to appreciate the technique and the texture of the finished canvas. My work represents many hours of work...there's no quick formula to what I do. I hope you will love having this original painting in your home. Please contact me regarding any questions you may have.
