Straight River

Straight River

A 12x12" pyrography and watercolor painting on cradled wood panel of Straight River in Owatonna, MN. Straight River is a favorite place for my family. It is close enough that I can share it with my girls but just far enough removed that all you hear is the beautiful sounds of nature surrounding you. This specific moment was in the middle of winter. Snowflakes falling gently on our faces as we looked out to a frozen river with trees blanketed in hoar frost. Time felt frozen and still as we took a moment to appreciate the beauty that surrounded us. This piece is carefully burned then painted to capture this moment. Each branch and shadow is burned to contrast the white painted snow while leaving space for the natural wood color to emerge in the painting. Framed in a custom wood float frame in a dark walnut stain to accent the wood burned elements.

This piece was also inspired with permission by the beautiful photography from Heidi Douglas.

This piece is currently on display at the Maple Grove Arts Center. Please email first to inquire availability.
