My painting, Curación, has been honored by its inclusion in the upcoming Society of Animal Artist 58th Annual Exhibition later in St. Petersburg, Florida, July 28-October 23, 2018. Curación is a prayer for the healing and the awakening of humankind. Watching the perpetually rippling water on a tranquil day at the wetlands is a form of meditation for me. The endless movement, the constantly changing reflections of light and atmosphere, the eons-old interactions between the birds and all the aquatic life that depend on the coastal wetland, remind me, in spite of the deafening noise of our collective egos, of the infinitesimal role humankind plays in Earth’s history.
