Mermaid Meadow

I started painting whales on old boards from barns that had fallen under disrepair and lost their use. I love painting on the wood because each piece is unique and adds a layer of texture and history. Some of the barns here in Maine can be 100-200 yrs old. Their old knots and saw marks present character, and they give me a challenge to paint on. I keep my paintings relatively simple and take into account the interesting features that the wood already has. What I’ve heard from people is that they appreciate the character of the wood and the personality of the animals I paint.
