Cape San Blas is a favorite place of mine. Extending northward from the Cape between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay is St. Joe Peninsula, which is a spit of land, 15 miles long. Inaccessible by car, the only way to enjoy the pristine beauty of this untamed peninsula is by boat or on foot. Six weeks after the death of my mother, tired from the years of caring for her as her mind was lost to dementia, I took off on my own for a ten day hiatus, renting a funky cabin at the bottom of St. Joe Bay. It was the winter of 2015 and very few people were around. With determination I decided to walk around the entire Cape one day. It took me over 10 hours and I did not see anyone the entire time, other than one boat miles away in the center of the bay.
Such pristine, simplistic beauty! It was during this walk that I photographed this sandbar in the bay. The simple pattern of the ripples in the dampened sand, which was a part of a pristine, uncomplicated landscape, was worthy of painting. Though it reflects the loneliness I felt the time, this painting also communicates how soothing to my soul this sojourn was at a time of great loss.
