This piece was inspired by the massive snow storm in the Columbia River Gorge in 2017/18. We had several feet of snow that lasted for weeks. I've never learned so much about shoveling and snow gear! I was struck by the patterns created by human foot prints over time and how the rhythms in the snow mimicked waves on water. The painting is imbedded with the Arabic word Baraka which means blessing or that which is imbued with sacredness. Water in this form brought our neighborhood together as we shoveled snow and helped each other through the long winter. You can see my process on Instagram: @artwithamirra.
Archival Gicleé prints are on acid free paper with a light texture. Paper prints have a 1" white border and can be framed without a matt. Allow for 2 weeks for printing and shipping. Prints are created in a small print shop in Portland, Oregon. Going local takes a little more time, but I believe in supporting our local economy!
