Oceana is my newest treasure. She arrived at my house yesterday and took up residence in my studio on the wall over my altar. She was created by sculptor Cheryl Dolby, of Roanoke, Virginia. I've always had a strong connection to the sea and all of its creatures - both real and mythical, and when I saw this beautiful work on Cheryl's blog, I thought about it for about ten seconds, then went to her Esty shop and clicked "Buy"!

This is Oceana's story, a story about the ocean, written by Cheryl...


As she was standing at the edge of the ocean
she could hear the waves chanting
their familiar song.

“Come to me,
I am geater than you,
I am wiser than you....
I am the one.”

She resisted once again.
How long could she continue to resist…
How much longer before she embraced her larger self,
her destiny...
her soul…
the sea….

What a beautiful photo you created of Oceana. I love the way in which you displayed her with that rich blue background. I am honored to have one of my pieces on your studio wall and so glad to get to know you through your wonderful blog~
