"The Good Earth." 

"The Good Earth" is an original acrylic mural I painted as part of the SLAM Mural Project here in Bozeman, MT.  The original is 4x8 feet and will be installed outdoors in the Bozeman Sculpture Park near the Bozeman Public Library.  Three artists were invited to paint the themes: Patience (myself), Hope (Kelsey Dzintars)  and Happiness (DG House.)  The trio of art is meant to inspire and uplift the community. The three paintings will eventually move around Bozeman as long term public art installations.  


“This challenging year has shown me that patience can lead to positive changes. In this mural I wanted my bear family to show that focus and determination in a garden can improve your surroundings, remind one that you are part of the natural world, and that by planting a garden you are actively taking part in the growth and flourishing of living things.  Gardens are places where we can work together.  Seeds, soil, water, sunlight, and patience, can change your world.  Some things that grow through the garden experience are joy, self-reliance and the courage to try new things.  A garden can bring all ages together.  It is never too early or too late to start." 




PS* there are not five but seven bears in this painting. You will be able to find the other two when you order larger images. 


The original is an acrylic on wood board. 

This image is available in reproduction.
