This painting, Stand Up, will be on view in the exhibition,
Welcome to the Symbiocene
As the oceans warm rapidly near my home in southern Maine, and the wind howls under gray skies, plants grow in abundance along the shore. The sound along which I live no longer freezes in winter. The environment is changing.
This painting presents a fragile looking plant with white flowers in confrontation with a dark swirl emerging from a torrid sky. It presents my thoughts about the starkness of our times and our potential for resilience and growth.
