This American Bison Art - Two Bison Double Trouble Canvas Print is a homage to every Bison that has secretly wished to dye the top of his/her hair green. 

These bad boys/girls are at that 'rebellious' stage.

I am definitely picturing them as either siblings or best friends.

If I were a Bison and was forced to have the same hairdo as everyone else, then I too would probably decide to dye my hair a different shade.

Individuality baby!

This one is for anyone who has had a best friend or a sibling and done everything with them. 

Including the dodgy stuff like dying your hair!

Only to end up with a totally different color!

This is for you.



Is that someone still in your life?

Friendships and Family experiences become harbors that your ship can always sail into. 

5, 10, 20, even 50 years can pass and yet, get you both in a room together and those memories still emerge from your collective consciousness to once more take center stage.

Some things are forever.

It needn't be dying you hair.

The light of youth inevitably shines in varied and unexpected ways.

You carry those memories lightly in your chest.

Moments with others that when you slam your clenched fist against your beating heart you can still return to.

No matter how much time has passed.

Because they are the stuff of which you are made.

Sometimes the 'trouble' is the 'juice' of life you remember the most.

And often times, it is the shared moments we look back on most fondly.

Because sharing is the ultimate connector of lives.

The threads that bind us are like twisted spider silk that may seem delicate, but which withstand the strongest winds and the most furious storms.

There was a 'Wear Sunscreen' speech that did the rounds on the internet in August 1997 (and probably a lot more since). It was attributed to Kurt Vonnegut and described as a commencement address he had given to MIT that year. Only, he never said it... 

It was actually a column on June 1st 1997 by Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich, called  “Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young.” (Go read it and then come back. It's epic)

One part of Mary's advice has always stuck with me:

"Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle, because the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young."

Wise words.

Anyway... the text on the canvas is:


Pretty self-explanatory :-)

When these two get together...

Perhaps the one you have 'held on to' might like this canvas?

Or have it on your wall, for you to remember that our hearts are the last bastions of our youth and that no-one who is young in their heart can ever truly be old.
