A few commissions have travelled home across the United States this past month. 'Let it wash over you' was sent to Orange County to get stretched for a man who's life work is in renewable and zero impact energy use. The wave is a beautiful metaphor of nature energy, a powerful constant pulse of the ocean.
Suzanne wanted to depict a memory of her awakening as a young woman swimming alone in Lake Tahoe. We collaborated on this swapping images for story until we came to the perfect representation of her younger self feeling the freedom of her body in the jeweled blues of this fantastic lake. Finally, when her painting was complete, I rolled up the canvas and sent it to a wonderful frame shop in Eagle, Idaho to have to stretched for its' new home.
