"The Sun sets with a golden vibrance, and resets the day. The Moon wanes to a silver sliver until she hides in plain sight. Water splashes with joy as the tide recedes, revealing treasures of the seas. “This place...” I think to myself, “there isn’t a word.” Goodbye. Hello. Another circle, another cycle. Another end, and another beginning. And as Venus looks on in the distance with the promise of a night sky and the wisdom that comes with age, I realize that this is not for me to understand. It is only for me to appreciate. Maybe that is the understanding." Elisabeth Ladwig

"In Plain Sight" portrays a surreal scene featuring a woman standing at the shoreline where the water meets the land. The woman wears a voluminous, silvery-gray dress with an off-the-shoulder design. The bottom of the dress transitions into the shimmering spray of the waves crashing against her. This blending of fabric and water creates a magical and dreamlike quality to the scene. The woman's hair is swept to the side by an unseen breeze, and she opens her chest to a crescent moon, which stands out starkly against the lighter tones of her dress. The environment is muted in color, with a warm, graduated hue transitioning from a sandy tone at the top to the cooler blues and greens of the ocean. The sky looms large furthering the piece's ethereal and mysterious atmosphere. The woman's placement and posture give a sense of contemplation and connection with the natural elements surrounding her, inviting the viewer to ponder the narrative or symbolism behind this artistic tableau.
