Juanita Bellavance, Some simple dirt, From the Chestatee River portfolio, 2021, Acrylic on canvas, 24 x 24 inches
It is when we notice the dirt that God is most present in us; it is the very sign of His presence. ~ C.S. Lewis The day I was so captivated by this dirt I had not heard this quote before. It makes total sense based on the thoughts and feelings I experienced at the sight of this particular spot of riverbank dirt. I feel something when I look at it and remember the presence I felt at the river that first day my river journey began. Naturally, I had to make a painting inspired by it.
