Sea of Aire 'painting' by: Anna Thoreau
Sea of Aire by: Anna Thoreau

Sea of Aire is my first painting I did right when I first became friends with one of my besties a rockin Detroit based Artist, and her soul sister. I was totally newb to the art scene and we three exploded that night in a beautiful soulful live-painting session at the Lofts off the Riverwalk close to downtown Detroit. The Diamond D.

It’s pure creativity from the soul of this world. I painted it when I first started busking playing the bucketdrums at the Lions and Tigers games.

Basically, it’s coming into myself as a freelance creative be it music I’m free-styling, writing, painting, or coding it’s pure expression from budding talents and friendship blooming in an hour –the kind that cries, and laughs hysterically and makes your heart grow. There’s a rawness and a vulnerability that has to be present to create works like this.

“Sea of Aire”, is part of the ‘Wall of 100 Makers’ currently touring Detroit art venues. #wallof100makers

Wall of 100 makers” opens again at The Carr Center next month on November 3rd.
