BVI Dreams

12/25/2021 – I recently returned from a sailing adventure in the British Virgin Islands (BVIs). The wind, water, light, coral reefs, and islands generated vibrant dreams as I slept each night on the boat-as it moved around the anchor line and gently rocked in the protected cove we moored within.

This painting represents my BVI sailing experience- with its green pyramidal hills and semi-submerged boulders, multi-colored waters ever changing from sunrise to sunset, and the peaceful sense of sailing along the rolling seas. I left a few small portions of the mirror exposed, to allow reflections to both generate movement and changing light, when installed on a wall.
