Nothing makes a great first impression like an innovative expression. Price uses invention and imagination to creatively delve into abstracts and contemporary painting. Her approach is exploratory, finding unsuspecting allure in subjects like decaying buildings or weathered walls. She also finds beauty in the everyday world, using found objects such as wire, old string, and rusted objects to accentuate her perception, to glamorize the way she looks at life. Price's paintings are spiritual, yet firmly rooted in the physical world. They have a look of antiquity, yet capture the feel of the Southwestern United States and Mexico, and are also contemporary. Her artwork can be found on the Square in Wimberly, Texas, and throughout the state.

Unlike some parts of Texas, the trees in Kerrville turn golden, yellow and red, particularly along the Guadalupe River which flows through the town. Maxine Price was intrigued by the upside down reflections of the trees on the far bank of the river combined with the overhanging branches of the trees on the near side. She has painted several scenes from that day on the Guadalupe including "Dancing on the Water". She uses not only her own photos as reference but her memory and feelings about day and the scene to paint from.
