"Wild and Precious Life", Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

"Wild and Precious Life"

This is an original mixed media painting I created, fresh off the easel.  The inspiration for this piece was to strive every day to live an authentic life and find joy in the chaos of a very ordinary life.  The quote on the piece is from one of my favorite poets, Mary Oliver, and reads, "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"  This piece was created with acrylics, inks, and painted papers.

This one is available.  Please feel free to email me with questions or comments.

"Into the Mystic", Original Mixed Media Abstract Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

"Into the Mystic"

This is an original Mixed Media Abstract Painting, fresh off the easel.  It was inspired by the soothing, but powerful ocean waves.  I usually struggle with abstract painting, but this one just flowed.  

This piece was done with alcohol inks, acrylics, molding paste, and has textural elements of sea glass and broken windshield glass within the focal point.  I borrowed the title of this painting from Van Morrison's song, Into the Mystic.  It just seemed appropriate for this painting!

This piece is available.  It measures 36 X 24 X 1.5, done on a birch cradle board surface.  It is finished with resin, which makes the colors "pop".  It comes ready to hang.

Feel free to email me with questions, comments, or if you are interested in purchasing.
