Maya Henaff
Anthem, Arizona

Maya Henaff started taking art classes in elementary school and art became an important part of her life. The long walks she would take through the forest became her biggest inspiration. Even though she now lives in the Sonoran desert, she continues painting trees and water. She hopes to communicate the serenity of nature in her works. When she paints, she enjoys listening to Americana, Country, Folk and R&B music. Fun fact: she enjoys cooking meals using her own recipes and especially likes to have fun with food presentation.

Hi Maya- I just received "LAKE" and it was everything I hoped it would be- a serene, calming lake scene that looks great on my art wall. Keep up with the fine artwork that you do. Cheers, Frank

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This piece was inspired by the strong contrast of light during sunrise. I used both a palette knife and a brush. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
