Juanita Bellavance, Mesmerized, 2020, Acrylic on panel, 12 x 12 inches. Framed.
As we stood at the rim of Kilauea on the Big Island, Hawaii only months after its 2020 eruption we were mesmerized by the steam rising from the hot volcanic foundation. We stood for a long period of time lost in the steam still rising from the ground due to the recent eruption. It was a somber experience.
