This piece was inspired by a grouping of flowers that were blooming at an unusual time of year. The intention is to bring awareness to the parallel between nature and our lives, specifically the idea of pursuing something at an unexpected time. The edges of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted black with the artist's signature on the bottom right edge. It comes wired to hang.

Getting to Know Lisa

Based in California’s Central Valley, Lisa Manes-James is a retired art teacher whose work is inspired by her physical, sensory, and emotional connections to natural environments. Her non-objective paintings explore the essence of nature through color, organic shapes, and varied textures. Lisa works intuitively with brushes and tools, adding and removing paint according to her instincts. She paints in oil, a medium she finds to be sensuous and rich. For the artist, the experience of painting is a metaphor for the internal and external forces that shape the soul. Her ultimate intention is to cultivate an awareness of the relationship between the natural world and human emotions, experiences, and existence.
