For every painting Michele Morata creates, she includes a Poetic Art Statement. "Poetic words emerge while I am painting, which become the statement," says Michele. "It's my intention that these words can be used as a form of meditation with each artwork."

Poetic Art Statement for this piece: Dream of Elysian - Peaceful motion of pause.  

Michele's inspiration for this series came from a beautiful dream, where she was at Treasure Island Beach in Laguna Beach, CA. After spending hundreds of hours at this coastal location, several painting series have emerged. This painting is on gallery wrapped linen with finished grey edges. It comes ready to hang.
