Well, this is something that is new for us: we have one amazing artist filling the walls of both our shops! Vanessa Stark creates lively works of art and this series features work overlaying topographic maps of our area and the mountains we call home. It is nice to dissect her work and see the relationship of the subject matter to the location of the actual map used.
A bit from Vanessa: “My paintings are without artificial flavors, pesticides or otherwise unnatural influences. I am somewhat in control while painting but mostly they leak from the subconscious. I paint whatever appears when I time warp to that place of lucid creation. The land of daydreams, sunbeams, snowflakes, rainbows, wave breaks and other such fun things that live in the world between reality and dreams.”
