Abstract Sunflowers Here's a print of a painting I completed during one of my college art classes in 2008. It sold to a client before I had even finished it. Original painting was 36" x 48". I've always believed that every original painting finds its rightful owner, and the person who is meant to have it, but this is one of those pieces I wish I held on to... This, and a bunch more art prints are headed this afternoon to @botanicandluxe!

2011, painted for @shawnbarneybarronart Oceans of Arts group show at the Blitzer Gallery in Santa Cruz. I asked Barney what to name this piece, and he instantly came up with, "More Ocean!!" In all the vastness, plenty, and depth of life that Oceans represent, I could not have picked a better name. "More Ocean Triptych", oil on canvas, sold in 2012 out of a gallery in Encinitas, and is still to this day one of my all time favorite pieces. (beautiful resin sculpture in lower right hand corner by @vbsurfboards)

Creating preliminary contour lines and original pen work with Tim Ward Art (@timwardart) on this new Santa Cruz Mermaid graphic. The mermaid and the kelp make an "SC!" Can't wait to watch these lines develop into a finished design. We hope to express the love we have for the place we are both so lucky to call home. Dedicated to our beloved SC, the abundant life around us, and the fluidity and freedom that inspires us both. #santacruz #mermaid #mermaidart #surfart #maianegre #timwardart #santacruzsticker

Just completed & installed this new 51x72, atmospheric abstract #oilpainting for one of my clients. My favorite part of the process of custom work, is capturing each person's unique story and vision, providing a piece of art that embodies a specific moment or feeling in their life. Really enjoyed painting this one, it celebrates new beginnings & shifts in life, in a constant state of peace and love. #oceanart #maianegre #instaart #art #artist #capitola #love
