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:
This piece was so much fun to do, people who have viewed this piece in person said: ” this piece has so much energy, motion and emotion in it’ .
I wanted this piece to represent the earth and have the agate coming up through the fire. I wanted the piece to be warm earth tones yet bright and powerful like fire, giving it a abstract fire effect. I wanted it to be warm and organic but I added the turquoise blue to balance the piece for added contrast against the warm flames. To me the blue represents water as if the agate stones are being born under water making there way to the surface, or the blue could also be interpenetrated as sky and clouds instead of smoke. I wanted to give the illusion of both and let you the viewer decide on what you see and feel when you look at this piece.
This piece is so much different in person, it has a lot of texture making the flames really stand out. The agate is off the canvas which brings extra depth to the piece. I have tried to show the texture with the pictures.
All of the stones in this piece are Agate and Agate Slices.
Properties of Agate:
Protection, Strength, Harmony. Agate’s most noticeable properties overall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming.
