“WW Stories” or “God’s Truth” or “Not Only at Dunkirk”
I’m not sure what to title this piece. Right now it has three titles: “WW Stories” or “God’s Truth” or “Not Only at Dunkirk”. Each is purposefully chosen for totally different reasons.
This acylic 11”x14” painting was created at the Women’s Weekend at Camp Dunkirk on Lake Erie on Sunday, June 1, 2, 3, 2018. The trees are actual representatives from the view from Mother’s Memorial meeting building, although, they are in different order. I have no idea what type the two pine trees are, the large tree is an oak and the others are “weed trees”. I had fun help with color choices etc – thank you ladies! The sky and/or water is Dioxine Purple. Yes, the bark of the trees are Dioxine Purple and Phthalocyanine Blue with much more detail than the camera picks up. The needles and leaves are Turquoise Green with Cadmium Red Light Hue highlights. The painting does wrap around to all sides.
I decided to not “bring the labyrinth forward” this time. Up close it gives it a far different feel and I didn’t want to disrupt that energy. Perhaps the act of getting through the forest prepares you for the peace of the meditative labyrinth where Christ will walk with you… Or perhaps it’s the love of Christ that brings you through the forest to his peace (represented by the labyrinth)…
