"...year after year we are tossed by the waves of life, becoming fragile and brittle along the way. Only to be softened and yet strengthened at the same time.."

Coastal Impression Small Works Series
"Remnants" Collection (3)
"Set apart" Is an abstract 3D work -acrylic on canvas with fine gold metallic paint. It is one of 3 in the Remnants Collection. I incorporated beach remnants that I found on the Atlantic shores of South Carolina to create a tangible piece of art to allow the viewer to experience the beach in fine art style. Incorporating the art of Kintsugi I have set this piece apart adorning it with gold. Still in its "remnant" state but attached to the firm foundation it has been made whole! The new foundation of the piece, this sand dollar has found its new purpose and identity! This "set apart" work is intended to be purchased as 1 of a set of 3 in the Remnants Collections. Creating a beautiful display as a trio.

The story behind "Remnants" Collection
As I was walking the beach of Pawleys Island in SC, September of 2018, I came upon a few pieces of coral, flimsy, broken, and stranded on land. I myself felt, flimsy, broken, and somewhat "stranded" in my heart. You see I was at the beach by myself for a week doing some soul searching and healing. I was grieving the sudden loss of my mom and I had some questions...

So when I found these remnants on the beach, I identified with them. But I was the one picking them up, thinking of them as a treasure and that they had a purpose. Which gave me hope of the One that picks me up, tucks me away as His treasure and then carries me, mends me and sets me back on my way with the purpose He has for me.

Some seasons of life require us to walk alone, face reality and to dig deep. It is in these places of question, darkness, and despair that we must plant ourselves to reach up and branch out in trust. Trusting that we too will be picked up and set back on a solid rock because the world is full of shifting sand uncertainties.
