Original for Sale :  Soaked to Bursting  —  $ 545.00




Created in 2002  —  22 x 15 inches  —  watercolor, ink, collage

Art text: quiet crackling of soften seeds – splitting husks sprouting answers – soaked to bursting in living water


Statement:  Soaked to Bursting began as a “scrap painting,” with the outlines of seeds left and dirt on the page when I painted the brown edges of the seeds found in Underneath.  The prayer text came as I added the ground and it needed water.  Finally, I mounted the center painting on larger paper so I could highlight the flows of living water all around it.  I love this painting– full of such a deep, longing prayer of faith for the answers to emerge.
