Amethyst Awakening — 6′ x 6′ Wood Panel — Real Amethyst and Rose Quartz Crystals
One summer as a 7-year old, I almost drowned in a lake on a family outing. My father saved me, but I have never been able to overcome my fear of drowning. The beauty and sparkle of water is both awe-inspiring and terrifying at the same time. Genuine admiration and legitimate angst exemplified in a painting is my way of working through my lifelong phobia. As you look at the sparkling shoreline, imagine the wet pebbles under your toes and each crystal a treasure drawing you to wade further and further into the water. The sharp amethyst crystals and glass chips represent the danger that water can become to the unsuspecting. This painting will be on exhibit at ArtPrize10 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, September 16th through October 7th. The painting will go on sale during the event.
