"Spruce Root Tea" don wright 2016
16x20 acrylic on canvas

A native elder and dear friend gave me a container of Spruce Roots. These had been prepared by and for, Alex's dearly departed wife. This was a significant gift. My friend and raw food specialist Justin, dashed out of the cabin and collected some PIne Needles. He combines the roots and needles with my daughters Sage and he made us a tea. It was a divine experience and has caused me to ponder why I drink coffee.

"November" don wright 2016
16"x 20" Acrylic on Canvas

I dedicate this in honor of those fallen and lost to war. Its called November. I painted on an old used canvas. I painted it black first. Then I used it to clean my paint brushes as I was painting. Images began to emerge. This is my favourite of all my art. I learned about freedom and trust. I learned that the principles of doodle could be applied in full color. I learned that one doesnt have to plan or understand. One just has to open ones self up to ideas and emotions. Every November we turn our hearts over to shame and thanksgiving. When one realizes the horror and sacrifices made, one cant help but cling to love and hope.

12"x16" Marker Doodles on Acrylic Canvas

I have been looking for a way to make art that is very affordable.
I love to doodle so I have been doodling on painted canvas.
I introduced my mixed media art at a festival and it was very well received.
I have decided to increase my inventory substantially.
I ran out and bought 18 blank canvas' and some new markers
and I am having a blast!
