Enlightened Botanical

This is my latest painting.  It's 11x14 painted on stretched canvas.  I will be showing my new work at Art In The Park in South Portland ME on August 13th.  This is new show for me but  since my sister lives right down the street in Cape Elizabeth, it's a good excuse for a visit as well. 
I plan  on posting another painting this week however, my son, Max (20 years old) is preparing for a cross country trip which also involves organic farming along the way.  He is leaving Friday morning for 4 months!  Although I am not thrilled that he has decided to put finishing college on hold, this is a once in a life time experience that he will have with his cousin and another good childhood friend.  I have been feeling both anxiety and excitement for him.  They are going to many of the major national parks along the way camping for weeks at a time.  It really hasn't hit me yet that he is leaving and what he will be doing!  Everything happens for a reason and I know that this experience will be with him for the rest of his life.

I hope I can get someone to go with me to Portland. What a thrill to see you and your art.

Wow stunning! That green in the background color is one of my favorite colors in decor, its so rich and elegant. Just stunning.........your sons trip sounds incredible, I hope you will share more? I am so intrigued and I am always in awe of people who follow a dream which is obviously what he is doing.......do they have room for a fellow 21 year old, great guy:)

Thank you! Are you serious about the 21 year old ? I could find out.
