Canoe Presents 6"x6" mixed media

This abstract is one I made for myself. I like the round shapes of artist Mareva Millarc ( who is an accomplished abstract artist and generally great person. She is married to Peter Huntoon ( who is a successful watercolorist who has a unique style. They are two of my favorite Vermont artists. I wanted to give a nod to Mareva for her inspiration so I looked up her name and in Tahitian it means, "canoes bringing presents from island to island." This is interesting but too long, so I shortened it to "Canoe Presents." Mareva is not Tahitian, so her name I suppose is a French combination of Marie and Eva which is lovely.
