Title: White Sands Wind Song
24 x 24
Weight: 15.0 lbs.
It was 100 miles out of the way but we went anyway. White Sands National Monument is finally within view. The wind stirs up the sand creating a hypnotic dance - a whirling dervish of nature.
The wind crashes the silence as the car door opens but this wind is not howling. It's more like humming and singing. It's lyrical... it has a rhythm. The dunes are singing their song.
Even as a 10-year-old, I understand the timelessness of this place. It's an open channel into the ancient past. I wonder how many humans and animals have felt like I do right now.
This is the first time that I've thought of such things. It scares me to think like a grown up. I'm gonna go back and be a kid for now.
** 3rd Place Award Winner out of 498 in international art contest.

Charles A. Reyna is originally from Texas and now resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He studied Art History at The University of Houston and The University of New Mexico, In 1998, Charles began his career as a self taught web and graphics artist. He has incorporated those skills learned as an artist/designer into his latest artistic endeavors. In late 2009, having sketched ideas for about a year, he started painting. His love for abstract art inspired him to make this genre the vehicle for his own unique contribution to art.
Creating art allows me to express what is inside me, telling the story of who I am. What an incredible feeling it is to bring life to a canvas. I paint abstract compositions with hints of representation, coloring the canvas with my own unique feelings and emotions free of all boundaries. The most rewarding part of making art is being able to share this journey with others. I love immersing myself in this vast world of artistic expression.
