Make Waves
by Anne Faith Nicholls, 2017
Acrylic and gold enamel on treated, grommeted canvas tarpaulin, approx. 106” x 74”

Make Waves is a symbolic painting about taking risks, diving in, and “making waves”. Painted in a mural-like fashion, this giant canvas reveals a stretched narrative of courage, preparedness, and victory in the face of peril, symbolized by determined-looking swimmers, diving into rough waters, despite inclement weather.
