24x36 acrylic ink on wood panel
This was a celebration held at a neighbor's house where they built a large structure and burned it to celebrate the coming of the light. There are stories in every inch of intricate ink-markings in these paintings. Belitz seamlessly incorporates her Dutch folk telling heritage and her love for the Southwest in her work. They are at once traditional and contemporary in content and execution. These pieces are wonderful for children and adults to explore together and are certain to be family heirlooms.
