My piece entitled "Embrace" is composed of many layers of Venetian plaster, paint, and pastels. Its message is to suggest that we embrace life, every day, despite the hundreds of little reminders that our time in these bodies is finite. I've spent the last 3/4 of a year making 1,111 little seahorses that are now embedded in the painting following and forming their skeletal structures. The entire piece including the painting itself has taken me 11 months to complete. The piece itself is 10ft. high and 6ft. wide. The frame adds another 10 inches. Please come close and appreciate the details in the little seahorses.
