ARTIST STATEMENT:  THE SEA IS NOT FULL

The Sea is Not Full is the story of a soul searching for home. We are great big spirits gently and mysteriously wrapped into mortal bodies and we move about our days in this tension. I have found no other place that rivals the peace of the water’s edge. The thunderous waves crash on the shore and answer the restlessness inside. The sky paints the world and that light dances with all the colors we can see, holding all the things we might feel. Noise and chaos fade away into the rhythm of the tides, leaving me surrounded by beauty, connected to my maker. My brush brings me here again and again because going to the water is coming home.

all streams run to the sea,

but the sea is not full;

to the place where the streams flow,

there they flow again.

Ecclesiastes 1:7
