48" x 36"  - Acrylic on Canvas


“Moorings” are the ropes, chains, or anchors by or to which a boat, ship, or buoy is moored. This piece contains sail shapes, a nautical theme, and strong line work that makes an anchored framework. It's about remembering what keeps you connected and grounded in this life. The large black circle at the bottom of the picture is intentionally confrontational and represents an opening to the infinite or the abyss--either of which are equally terrifying, cannot be avoided, but hold magnificent treasure. There are 11 star-cross shapes, a reference to repetition and mantra, and the number itself, thought to be sacred in many traditions.
