What is a Primordial Dawn?

Christene SandesonShow2 Comments

The series “Primoridial Dawn” was initially inspired by the sandstone carving “Valley of the Shadow”; the four organic shapes frame the body of a sleeping infant. I was reminded of a rising yellow sun, the earth’s womb, a wavy line of water, and a sea-weed shape.

Fire and Ice Artist Statement

I love to explore ideas in my acrylic paintings: objects that could be very old, sea-or-land scape that triggers a memory, or animals that I connect with.

Forest or Trees?

“Forest Trail” was inspired while trail riding through the woods. Among the masses of green and grey await naked sprites and glancing eyes. It inspires delight and inspiration and is a good metaphor about seeing.

“Moon over Marsh” (12”X 12” acrylic on plywood) has just been purchased by the Town of Truro, N.S. It was created years ago during the months following the passing of my husband. At the time I tried to document the passing of time by  painting the full moon each month. There were months when I did not paint:  December, April, … Read More
