Maria

Maria 24"x12"x1.5"

Maria is named after another artist friend of mine. She is extremely talented in both painting and photography. She also happens to suffer with chronic illness as I do. This expressionist/abstract is my rendition of a tree she snapped a photo of. Completely struck by the colors and textures, I felt like I needed to capture it. Experimenting with molding paste and a butter knife, I finally figured out the evergreen bark. It’s funny, I find that some work looks better when photographed (I always worry people will be disappointed when then buy it after seeing a picture) and some work looks better in person than when photographed. This one is the case of the latter. I simply could not get the camera to show what I see when looking at this in person. So you’ll just have to trust me on this one. It’s a wonderfully woodsy painting and would do lovely in a cabin up North! Or as a stark contrast to city loft living!
