Acrylic, Water Color, Paper Map, Crystal Gesso on Canvas


A cataclysm is a violent event that overwhelms.  For me, this occurred when my lover suddenly showed up wearing a wedding ring. When I questioned him on it, he said “I thought you knew I was married…” though we had never discussed this and I most certainly did not know this.


I was inspired by the idea of the spark of love and the  many textures of heartbreak.


This piece contains crystal gesso, a paper map, water color paints, and acrylic paints.
