Dune Mamma Triptych

41" x 92", acrylic on heavy canvas, wood, 2012

 

I composed this triptych after a trip to the Sleeping Bears Dunes in Michigan. I loved the place. It was sandy beyond measure, and it was humid and summer rich when I was there. I felt the hot silica shifting beneath my bare feet, I felt a smooth, powerful force washing over the landscape, swaying it ever so slightly from moment to moment. The water was so powerful, more so than the earth that yeilded and obeyed her spirit force.
