The Forgiving Sea I began in 2016 as an interactive painting in my studio. The goal of the painting was to create an interactive event for all people to experience forgiveness in a physical way. This first painting of the series invited viewers to write a name of someone they wish to forgive and when the painting was full of names, painted them away with a new layer of the sea. Underneath the final version that you see above are 27 layers of these community-driven markings that are now a memory for those who contributed.
This can be purchased as an 18" x 18" limited edition art print mounted on a wood panel with an encaustic surface treatment. See the buy button above.
All proceeds from the sale, ensure the Forgiving Sea Project continues to serve others.
For information about the original painting, please contact Carolyn.
