- Mural by Courtney Powell -
Title: Mountain Avens | Acrylic | 10 x 10 Feet
During an art residency at the Fish Factory in Iceland, Courtney created a mural featuring Iceland’s national flower, mountain avens, and two of its birds, the arctic tern and heiðlóa. She named the arctic tern ‘Maple’ and the heiðlóa ‘Tuque’ to add a Canadian touch.
