Gentle waves ripple across the surface.  A sudden burst of sun yellow radiates a familiar visual heat then gradually succumbs to a deep sea cobalt blue. The scene is hot and cold, fire and ice, heaven and earth.

When I first noticed this peculiar item at a home enhancement store, I was immediately drawn to its unusual surface.  Though the initial piece was subtle in color, it had a unique sculptural quality. It’s general pattern reminded me of heat waves, sun rays and moving water. Later, I found that a certain amount of color enhancement was necessary to illustrate the combining of these two natural elements, fire and water.

 Several shards of light like tiny white arms push and stretch the blues and greens as they bend gracefully into a familiar curl. This isn’t the first wave nor is it the second, but it will have it’s time. Those brave enough to ride it will have spotted it immediately. They will see the waters subtle, seductive smile as she urges them to take the plunge. With hawk eyes, natural athleticism, and an unquenchable hunger for the unknown they will advance. Some will move cautiously; years of experience will have taught them when the time is right. Others will launch immediately, never considering the possible dangers they might face. With every atom of their bodies, held together with sound, they love the sport. It is, at it’s very essence who they are.

A couple of Christmases ago, my cousin Stacey had given me a pretty, decorative wire angel that was supposed to function as an alternative version of a tree. Several glass ornaments with simple, graphic patterns were included with the angel. Some were shaped like small droplets of water, others looked like spinning tops. The subtle patterns of light formed by the overlapping shapes resulted in some intriguing abstract photography. When taken out of their original context, some of the photos, like the one above, suddenly looked like familiar places and objects that many of us have seen or experienced.

If you long to live somewhere near the ocean, or you just want to take a visual and mental vacation from the present cold snap then feel free to join me once again in some meditative abstraction. . .

Blue is a beautiful and calming color that evokes meditation, mindfulness and inner serenity. When I found this series of objects, I just couldn’t resist making references to the countless number of maps that I had seen over the years. While my eyes surf through the supporting colors, my heart says, “Let’s do this again sometime.” So in the spirit of relaxation and tranquility, I am wishing you all an awesomely restful Sunday.
