Elements Series; incorporating semi-precious stone and unique pieces of the earth in a creative way.
This painting is part of my mixed media “ELEMENTS” Series where I want to bring in elements on the earth into my art. I love nature, I love finding things that have been created by nature such as semi precious stones and other items from the earth.
I love working with and showcasing the unique beauty that you find in each semi precious stone. I work with mostly Grade A and B semi precious stones; sometimes I use the same stones that are in rough form before they are faceted that you see in a fine piece of jewelry.
Most of the stones I use have been gathered for a year in order to incorporate together into my art. I get them from all around the world from various locations and venders.
Each semi precious stone also has individual properties that generate energetically from the stones. This is by wearing the stone, touching the stones and by having them in a room in your home.
I encourage people to touch the stones on the art to resonate with the properties. I have included some of the properties of the stones in the description so you will be aware of their specific properties; some are healing, energizing, loving, calming, resonate with different chakras, and evoke emotions.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I love creating them.
From the Artist:
My inspiration was definitely the quartz and large Apophyllite specimen that is in the middle of the cluster of stones on this painting. I found this Apophyllite piece at a gem and mineral show here in San Diego. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use it in one of my paintings for my Elements Series.
The Apophyllite is from the Jalgaon distinct in India, it has so many quartz points all grouped together on its original matrix which is the most valuable when it comes to the minerals and mineral specimens. I then wanted to further enhance that particular piece with more quartz points and quartz pieces which I then added around the large piece to make it really stand out and come together as a whole.
I call this emerging due to how the actual quartz emerges from the earth in such a way to form these amazing points and how I wanted the top of the painting to resemble sky and the bottom to be the earth that the specimen comes out from.
This painting has wonderful texture to make it look like lighting in the sky and roots in the earth that reflect brilliantly among the right angle and light of this painting. Bringing in many different components to this piece while almost being monochromatic.
I wanted the texture of the painting and stones really come through and not make it too overwhelming and more contemporary with the simple colors.
Apophyllite: Apophyllite is one of the best known Indian minerals. It helps with spiritual awakening, the stones have a high vibration that will raise your spirits, and spiritually energize your being. Even in a room will bring a sense of uplifting to you. Also helps with revealing stress, anxiety and tension. If used in meditation it is great for guidance from spirit.
Quartz: Wonderful multi use stone. Enhances energy of all other stones and metals. Harmonious and powerful. Aids communication. Sign of Entire Zodiac.
