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!

  1. Regardless of the on line casino bonus they 점보카지노 give you or the insane fixed most amount of free spins they promise. If find a way to|you possibly can} afford to play actual cash on slots, that is great. As lengthy as the positioning you select to play on is a respectable and controlled on-line on line casino. This excessive volatility slot machine does not have many bonus games or features . The only 'special feature' you get, is a round of eight free spins that prompts when a trident image lands next to Poseidon.
