About Pete Denison

I feel most excited when I’m deeply involved in my work. Bringing to life an idea nurtures a primal urge within me. My latest work involves adding and subtracting elements of a subject until I’m left with the action. Gazing through Dawn Patrol at the rolling sea transports one to a place and time we can all relate to.

2023 SWELL ARTWORK – Dawn Patrol

Tumble out of bed,
wiping crusty eyes,
jump in the car,
and slam it into drive,
going to meet my tribe
the dawn patrol.
Frothing deep inside,
magenta streaks across the sky,
horizon gazing,
swell gauging,
muffled greetings
as I join the dawn patrol.
