We drove the windy coastal passes to this gorgeous cove just about every month during ab-season.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI remember free-diving with my dad when I was a teenager, at age 14 or so. We would swim out past the break, and I would get sick and dizzy in the rocking of the swell.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWe arrived at the kelp forest a ways offshore and prepared to dive, with just our breath keeping us alive underwater, no tanks allowed while ab-diving. We tied up our inner-tubes for our catch to the kelp, marking our position.I prepared to dive. Deep breath in, deep breath out, centering myself and expanding my lungs.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI arched my body from the surface and propelled myself downward with my fins. I would swim down, down, down through clouds of sandy water, the kelp forest revealing rocky brown craggs in piles below me. My eyes darted wildly \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003eabout, searching to and fro for the glistening, silver abalone perched on the rocks near the ocean bottom. Every second mattered. Every second my lungs squeezed under the pressure of billions of gallons of water above me and the knowledge that I was swimming in the great, wild, ocean, unprotected and exposed. It was exhilarating. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAs I dove, I could see only a few feet in front of me at a time; that sandy water revealing inch by inch the next thing, and the next thing, as I dove, searching, breathless, and scared. My head pounded from the ice-cold water as it rushed inside my wetsuit hood.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThen I spied an abalone! There, and there, and over there! My heart raced as I calculated which was the largest and oh, if I could only swim down just a little further, maybe I could reach that big one there! But alas, my lungs could handle it no more and I flipped over and bolted to the surface. I broke that quicksilver lid of the ocean surface and gasped for air. My lungs filled with life again and my head felt light from oxygen deprivation. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAfter a short rest, I dove down again and this time, I spied a large silvery beast of an abalone. I grabbed my size gage and measured it. It was large, and so I grabbed my ab-iron and slid it forcefully under the suctioned foot of the abalone. With a quick flick of my wrist, I popped the abalone off of the rock and cradled it in my arms like a wide receiver running the football into the end zone. I did a summersault and peddled my fins as quickly as I could to the surface, this time bubbles leaking out of my smiling mouth and my teeth stinging from the freezing water. Victory tasted like salt water that day. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMy dad grabbed a few more abalone and I did too, and when we met our limit we swam back to the center of the cove and let the powerful mouth of the ocean push us back up onto the sand, with it's great blue tongues; wave by wave. We dragged our tubes onto the sand and rested from our excursion.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLater that night, after we drove the long and windy coastal passes back to our home in Concord, my dad harvested the abalone from their shells. Us kids would always feel around the squishy stomach for pearls, and sometimes we would find them. My dad pounded out the abalone and fried the sweet steaks in bread crumbs, garlic and butter. We feasted and saved the shells as a reminder of the beautiful provision from the universe and from God above: He provided a family full of love, a feast for kings and queens, and a shiny shell full of rainbows to remember all of these special things. \u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2021-01-08T13:21:54-08:00","created_at":"2020-12-16T22:33:36-08:00","vendor":"DOMKO Fine Art","type":"Fine Art Original","tags":["abalone","gray","grey","Ocean Abstract","rainbow","shell"],"price":3500,"price_min":3500,"price_max":67000,"available":false,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":32988277342269,"title":"8\" x 10\"","option1":"8\" x 10\"","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":false,"name":"\"Abalone Shell: Royal purple horizontal \" Print - 8\" x 10\"","public_title":"8\" x 10\"","options":["8\" x 10\""],"price":3500,"weight":227,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]},{"id":32988277375037,"title":"11\" x 14\"","option1":"11\" x 14\"","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":false,"name":"\"Abalone Shell: Royal purple horizontal \" Print - 11\" x 14\"","public_title":"11\" x 14\"","options":["11\" x 14\""],"price":7500,"weight":227,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]},{"id":32988277407805,"title":"12\" x 18\"","option1":"12\" x 18\"","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":false,"name":"\"Abalone Shell: Royal purple horizontal \" Print - 12\" x 18\"","public_title":"12\" x 18\"","options":["12\" x 18\""],"price":9000,"weight":227,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]},{"id":32988277440573,"title":"20\" x 30\"","option1":"20\" x 30\"","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":false,"name":"\"Abalone Shell: Royal purple horizontal \" Print - 20\" x 30\"","public_title":"20\" x 30\"","options":["20\" x 30\""],"price":18500,"weight":227,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]},{"id":32988277473341,"title":"26\" x 40\"","option1":"26\" x 40\"","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":false,"name":"\"Abalone Shell: Royal purple horizontal \" Print - 26\" x 40\"","public_title":"26\" x 40\"","options":["26\" x 40\""],"price":26000,"weight":227,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]},{"id":32988277506109,"title":"36\" x 48\"","option1":"36\" x 48\"","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":false,"name":"\"Abalone Shell: Royal purple horizontal \" Print - 36\" x 48\"","public_title":"36\" x 48\"","options":["36\" x 48\""],"price":67000,"weight":227,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/image_f18e0651-40c5-49b8-b5f9-d46d8c1325e4.jpg?v=1610140901"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/image_f18e0651-40c5-49b8-b5f9-d46d8c1325e4.jpg?v=1610140901","options":["Size"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":8913480810557,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.333,"height":3024,"width":4032,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/image_f18e0651-40c5-49b8-b5f9-d46d8c1325e4.jpg?v=1610140901"},"aspect_ratio":1.333,"height":3024,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/image_f18e0651-40c5-49b8-b5f9-d46d8c1325e4.jpg?v=1610140901","width":4032}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI remember clearly the trips my family took when I was a child to Fort Ross, CA.

They are symbols of transformation and they are often our first explanations of the meaning of transformation that we learned in kindergarten as we watch a butterfly transform from a caterpillar when it emerges from a chrysalis. To paint this without color is to acknowledge that something is missing and something has been drained from the collective soul of our society.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eA Life Without Color series is my artistic wrestling with the aggregate dysfunction of our society amidst a global pandemic. This series seeks to address the reality of our country amidst the pandemic and the grave realities of racial inequality in America. My heart aches for Black mothers...I want my artwork to do something...I want it to say, “I see your pain, it’s not fair and it’s not right, and I’m here for you.” I want it to work for Black mothers. I pledge to do more than live the status quo while Black mothers endure injustice. This is for you, Oregon, a city reckoning with civil unrest. This is for all the moms who had a baby in the pandemic. This is for the stressed, the stretched. This is for my heroes. This is for the unknown and the not yet born. This is for hope, and for a future. This is for you.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eLayers\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eOne of the special things about this panting are the layers. We all have them. It’s the gathering of years, milestones, and losses. It’s the mountain tops and the valleys and the endless stretches of days in between. Layers create texture, which creates depth. Living authentically means that it would be impossible to deny the events that shape texture on the canvas of our lives. Layers tell a story and sharing that story creates beauty and culture which make life worth living.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eShine\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThis painting tackles some very moving and deep issues in life, and it is full of commanding presence. Areas in this painting are painted with iridescent pigment to capture the light, and they shift with the morning and evening sun. When direct light is placed on the painting, it absolutely DANCES with light. The feeling of this piece is one of and grounding energy due to the symmetry and emphasis of the butterfly wings. The patterns found in the wings of the butterfly are energizing and eye-catching, yet the cool colors and the flowing, abstract background provide rest and reprieve for the eyes and the soul.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eColor\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThe largely monochromatic variety of grays are a backdrop for the subtle rainbows placed throughout the painting. They are like prisms of light which dance into the room in all their brilliance from windows or a diamond ring. They are a reminder of God’s promise amidst our pain, of the beauty that diversity brings, and that we are more beautiful together as we sing in harmony together.\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2020-11-11T12:13:30-08:00","created_at":"2020-11-11T11:53:23-08:00","vendor":"DOMKO Fine Art","type":"Fine Art

They are symbols of transformation and they are often our first explanations of the meaning of transformation that we learned in kindergarten as we watch a butterfly transform from a caterpillar when it emerges from a chrysalis. To paint this without color is to acknowledge that something is missing and something has been drained from the collective soul of our society.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eA Life Without Color series is my artistic wrestling with the aggregate dysfunction of our society amidst a global pandemic. This series seeks to address the reality of our country amidst the pandemic and the grave realities of racial inequality in America. My heart aches for Black mothers...I want my artwork to do something...I want it to say, “I see your pain, it’s not fair and it’s not right, and I’m here for you.” I want it to work for Black mothers. I pledge to do more than live the status quo while Black mothers endure injustice. This is for you, Oregon, a city reckoning with civil unrest. This is for all the moms who had a baby in the pandemic. This is for the stressed, the stretched. This is for my heroes. This is for the unknown and the not yet born. This is for hope, and for a future. This is for you.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eLayers\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eOne of the special things about this panting are the layers. We all have them. It’s the gathering of years, milestones, and losses. It’s the mountain tops and the valleys and the endless stretches of days in between. Layers create texture, which creates depth. Living authentically means that it would be impossible to deny the events that shape texture on the canvas of our lives. Layers tell a story and sharing that story creates beauty and culture which make life worth living.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eShine\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThis painting tackles some very moving and deep issues in life, and it is full of commanding presence. Areas in this painting are painted with iridescent pigment to capture the light, and they shift with the morning and evening sun. When direct light is placed on the painting, it absolutely DANCES with light. The feeling of this piece is one of and grounding energy due to the symmetry and emphasis of the butterfly wings. The patterns found in the wings of the butterfly are energizing and eye-catching, yet the cool colors and the flowing, abstract background provide rest and reprieve for the eyes and the soul.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p2\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eColor\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThe largely monochromatic variety of grays are a backdrop for the subtle rainbows placed throughout the painting. They are like prisms of light which dance into the room in all their brilliance from windows or a diamond ring. They are a reminder of God’s promise amidst our pain, of the beauty that diversity brings, and that we are more beautiful together as we sing in harmony together.\u003c\/p\u003e"}

My eyes darted wildly \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003eabout, searching to and fro for the glistening, silver abalone perched on the rocks near the ocean bottom. Every second mattered.

With a quick flick of my wrist, I popped the abalone off of the rock and cradled it in my arms like a wide receiver running the football into the end zone. I did a summersault and peddled my fins as quickly as I could to the surface, this time bubbles leaking out of my smiling mouth and my teeth stinging from the freezing water.
