IN A NUTSHELL
A high quality photo poster, made to order, of my original painting, Brinewives, Washing Hearts. 16x20”.
Three nude women of indeterminate age stand in the waters of an estuary marsh, in a flooded field once full of birch trees. These are the Brinewives. Their skin is the same gray-green color as the scene’s background, with the same mottled, marbled, salty watercolor textures. They have gaps in their chests and bodies, where starry, black voids and bone-white ribs shine through. Two of the brinewives hold disembodied, indigo blue hearts in their hands. The tallest, at least two heads taller and larger than the others, steadies herself against a tree trunk, and bends forward to cradle the belly of a standing wife. Their faces are all partially to fully obscured by long, wavy, gray and white hair that trails into the water like ripples. Dead birch stumps rise from the water, and acid green ghosts of ferns and branches shoot up from the marsh and the withered trunks. In the waters float more indigo hearts. Whose hearts are those? They’re the tide’s hearts now.
What starts as a trickle ends in a river. What starts as a river ends in a riptide.
