Brother Maars 

Sleepy Town, 2021

Oil on unwrapped canvas paper

121.3 x 172.4 (cm) | 48 x 68 (in)


Artist Statement:

“This piece inspired by my initial impression of Las Animas. In it you seen a vague silhouette of Adobe houses, representing the rich history that may or may not be lost in translation these days. You see that more than half of the piece is a peaceful, deep blue sky.”

“The concept is based on the Norman Vincent Peale quote: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land amongst the stars. What I hope this piece illustrates is that it takes courage to dream and even more heart to pursue those dreams.”

Notable: This piece has been featured in the La Junta Tribune-Democrat, Opera News and Newsbreak. (May 4, 2021)
