It’s Hot in New Orleans

I had my roommate take this photo of me with Cosmic Waves to allow people to see the scale.  I am 5’2″.  Funny but when it is really hot and humid in New Orleans, I tend to make art that mimics water.  Not so strange really.  The work simply reflects where I want to be:  in water! I do love the ocean and miss living close to it.  If you don’t know this already, Louisiana doesn’t really have beaches. You have to drive over to Mississippi or Alabama to get some nice beach time.  Lucky me, soon I will be in San Francisco for 12 days to show my work at the gallery, Art Saves Lives, on Castro Street.  A break from the heat and humidity and time with my kids and friends has motivated me to go there this summer.  While there, I will make a trip or two to put my toes in the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean.MARIAWITHART2018

Birds are Beyond Us – sold

Each panel measures 12″x36″x1.75″ acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. $845.  This is what I see early in the morning when I sit in my backyard sipping coffee. As I watch the flocks of birds travel from tree to over head wires, they settle on trees together, singing songs and chatting, and I wonder how we can even begin to understand the complexity of their worlds. I am amazed and humbled.
