“By The Sea” Series

I had first considered depicting this little girl as a tiny figure standing at the edge of a vast ocean to show perspective and symbolize how small we are in the whole of creation.

But the more I pondered and reflected, I kept cropping my original reference photo and zooming in closer and closer. The horizontal format became vertical and a different message emerged: the little girl’s enraptured gaze into a living, breathing creation, swirling at her feet. To be this engaged, this connected, this vulnerable with the Creator, is to be alive.
