A happy golden finch takes a rest among delicate tree branches against a peaceful background. This painting has an incredible amount of intricate details layered in vivid, yet soothing colors.
Mary Elizabeth says: "In art therapy, the self is represented through our representation of trees. Every branch, every twig, every shade of leaf, is an expression of myself at that moment. In working with the unpredictable nature of alcohol inks, I create controlled structure while simultaneously "going with the flow" and working around and with the unpredictable shapes and blends of the inks. I love the technical challenge required to make it all work together to create something graceful and beautiful."
Mary Elizabeth finds her happy place creating birds, trees and other works. She hopes you can see a happy version of yourself in her work as well.
