Here are some photos from a recent art opening of an exhibition I titled Spilling Over.
This past summer, I was fortunate enough to go to the beach twice. The ocean offers us humans a chance to rejuvenate, find perspective, celebrate family, slow down and have fun. For those reasons and more, people flock to the beach during summer vacations. This past summer, however, the news reports were full of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. News of this catastrophe was difficult to hear. My heart ached for those people and creatures whose lives and livlihoods depend on the ocean.
This art show was my attempt to honor beauty and the joy in the face of ugliness and tragedy of the oil mess. Some of the paintings, spill over the edge of the canvas onto the walls.
see the little drippings?
The flowers and birds extend down to the wall.
