ENTITLED: TREE POSE Peace is our very nature and yoga leads your to inner peace. My art recognizes the beauty of nature combined with the stamina and mediation of yoga by super-imposing yoga poses within my tree. Within the tree are 16 sun salutation poses surrounded by the beauty of nature. My medium is Eco-Friendly by mixing my own paint from Wild MICHIGAN Berries, Limestone, Cornstarch and Milk, 100% Cotton Acid-Free Canvas, hand made frame. (Welcome to Artprize 2013!! My completed art piece Tree Pose is presented along with the progressive photos. This was a learning experience painting with natural substances, it required much trial and error. Kudos to our ancestors who were the pioneers of natural paint.)

Venue & Connection Information

This is my 3rd year in Artprize. I am a Michigan native and reside in Sand Lake approximately 25 miles north of Grand Rapids. This year's entry is Eco-Friendly from 100% handmade cotton and wood frame, with homemade paint from wild berries picked in Michigan combine with limestone, cornstarch and milk. My work is a piece in progress, as I have done the last 2 years, my preliminary drawing is uploaded and I will be posting my progress but I assure you that the piece will be complete weeks prior to Artprize. I am a self-taught artist. The prior years entries started with an initial sketch and blossomed into art. My finish piece will measure 4ft x 7 ft. long, no special lighting, devices or electricity is needed other than space. Thank you for your consideration. Feel free to connect with me by email:
