The Writing is on the Canvas
mixed media canvas assembled using natural elements by Angela McMullen
This art piece is the first in a series, which metaphorically represents the essence of life.
Like my writing, it was principally inspired by nature. Unpredictably intuitive, this unfolded to manifest words to live by.
Materials used include tea bags, sage, twigs, seeds, burlap, paper, acrylics, lace, mesh, string, corking, tea, gauze, beeswax, and beads.
This piece conveys the following:
"Leave your mark. Be in nature. Tea fixes everything. Leave nothing undone. Live your dreams. Drink more wine. Be yourself."
Angela McMullen is a freelance writer who lives and writes in maritime Nova Scotia, where she is inspired by the rhythm of the Bay of Fundy tides, the pulse of long-standing forests, the expansive fields of the Annapolis Valley, the backdrop of North and South mountain ranges, and the distinction of the four seasons. www.forestwriting.com
Angela's most recent work is a slim book of poetry that captures the pure essence of nature and her unwavering resilience. Infused with undertones of Italian influence, this collection of poetry speaks for itself.
