Love Song from the Sea

Currently hanging in the “Haiku” exhibit at the Firehall Gallery in the historic Charles Town Arts District.  The original is created in oil and cold wax, a fascinating, infinitely layered process which can incorporate a variety of media.  I created this painting in response to the poetry of the sea, specifically the Atlantic Ocean off Assatateague Island while I was camping and developing “Picture Wild Ponies.”

The asemic writing reminded me of a love letter.  I love Wikipedia’s definition of anemic writing:  “Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means ‘having no specific semantic content’, or ‘without the smallest unit of meaning’. With the non-specificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning, which is left for the reader to fill in and interpret.
