Art: Migration by Artist Lisa J. Rough
This piece was inspired by the work of artist Susan Seddon Boulet. I find her work deeply moving and spiritual, reflecting a marvelous connection to animal spirits. When I thought about the March 2006 show, "Springboard~ Art Inspired by Art", I knew that I wanted to create something in honor of my own sacred connection to the animal world, but I really didn't know how I'd begin.

The delightful way in which they accompanied me around the lake in a complete circle made this all the more powerful.

This piece was pyrographed (woodburned) on solid pine, and then painted with acrylic paint. I also gave it a coat of polyacrylic to protect it and a wire on the back for hanging.
