Bhumisparsha, or Earth-touching Mudra, is a work of art that emerged from artist Michelle DeMarco's time spent visiting Opacum Woods in Sturbridge through the fall and winter of 2006. A limited number of prints are available with proceeds benefiting the word of Opacum Land Trust.
About The Painting:
DeMarco was inspired on an autumn afternoon with light illuminating the cascading yellow leaves of birch, bringing focus to the delicate
mosses growing on the trees and rocks. She brought this image to life and the resulting egg tempera painting is an illustration of how talent can support the mission of Opacum. The limited edition archival prints are 17" by 22", each numbered and signed by the artist. Prints are a gift with your donation of $75 or more, or $50.00 each, and may be purchased by calling Opacum at 508-347-9144, or via e-mail
