Original Dyed Velvet - 40" x 30"

For this year's theme of Moving Beyond, I envisioned all of us reemerging from our isolation and seeing each others' full faces again. When I visit the coast, I always put my wishes into the ocean as it's powerful. I thought of a sun rising through water and sky providing us all with renewal. Emerging is what came out of my previous experiences and a wish that has been granted - our freedom to once again gather together and enjoy and grow.
