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:
I wanted this painting to be almost monochromatic where you felt light and airy with the stones, which also represents the properties of the Selenite used. But a hint of golden yellow and then pink hues while adding the darker shadow areas in the water to then further highlight the beautiful stones. It has alot of texture in the piece which was done with tissue paper adding more dimension to the painting.
I used all metallic paint for this piece which I loved but it was a bit hard to photograph. The main color is a champagne a bit darker than a ivory color with a little pinker champagne color.
I also wanted the white in the piece to represent the crown chakra and have a sense of peace when viewed. Making this painting really quite calming and soothing in a way when you view it.
Selenite can take away negative energies.
Selenite is one of the more powerful healing stones for the new age and spiritual work. It is excellent for meditation, and ensures a peaceful environment when stones are placed around the home.
Quartz: Wonderful multi use stone. Enhances energy of all other stones and metals. Harmonious and powerful. Aids communication. Sign of Entire Zodiac.
