I am so grateful to everyone who came out to the opening reception and made my day! I seriously filled up on all the amazing hugs and I feel so incredibly blessed to be surrounded by this community of creatives.

mixed media on canvas 24x24
I rise to meet the waves, and let go
my form is now driftwood
laying in the gentle arms of the ocean
Into the ocean, into the sea
inside a wave I find sanctuary – Joyelle Brandt
I never intended to paint this song as part of this show. When I started on this piece, I thought I was working on Inside & Out. And then the painting had other plans.
Sanctuary is the only painting in the collection based on one of my own songs. I wrote it about how being in nature, and especially in the ocean, reminds me of my connection to all living things.
