Maine



"Maine"
15"x10.5" acrylic on organic bamboo

I had purchased this Maine shaped organic bamboo board years ago with the intention of wood burning the lakes and rivers onto it. I moved on to other projects and this board was collecting dust in a closet for years. I was out of canvases one day and thought I'd try painting it with fluid acrylics. I'm so happy I did! I love Maine and find this piece wonderfully captures it.

I had fun with the texture with this one. And all the expression in the face. A wonderful bird!

High

High

Wake up to the world all around you
your heart and your spirit are free
accept your mistakes
don’t worry
try to live
try to breathe
try to be.

Find your peace 
in the center of chaos
listen when you can’t find the words
swallow your pride 
tame your ego
make friends with the trees and the birds.

Fly high on the wings of your ancestors
grow up 
and find love
and find light
believe in the flip side of evil
seek some answers 
know your truths
do what’s right.

It was pure joy to navigate all the expression in this beautiful face. This panting won second place at the Mahoosuc Art Show in Bethel, Maine this year.
