Acrylic on Gallery Canvas by Judi Pinkham
From Judi Pinkham
I can think of no better metaphor for change and transition than the sea. The ocean is literally in constant flux with gentle swells to turbulent crashing waves while daily tides cover and uncover the shore. The sea also symbolizes the unpredictable and transformative aspects of my own life. The subtle and bold colors, variety of brushstrokes, and light in my paintings evoke both the dynamic motion of the sea and personal emotion. The shore reminds me to unplug and tune in to the rhythm of the waves and if I’m lucky, an inner transformation occurs from a sense of uncertainty to belonging and well being.
