This magical realism art print is for lovers of old myths and mysterious adventures that happen in otherworldly places, like the deep bayous of East Texas. This figurative painting explores the myths these places inspire and how these physical places connect us to mystery and desire. Inspired by Arthurian legends the original oil painting of these two young enchantresses are The Lady of the Lake and Sibyl guarding the cypress and pine woods of Caddo Lake, this bayou is located between Louisiana and East Texas. Created collaboratively with my two daughters in the middle of a camping adventure -- I wanted to capture their imaginative worlds, their power and their mystic in the deep woods of East Texas.
This limited-edition art print makes the perfect, unique local gift for "all those who wander" and other myth lover who connect to stories like King Arthur, Tolkien and other magical worlds.
