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 painting was one the funnest thing to put together, I tried something new and it works. This was one of those new experiments in where you go in blind, not sure what to expect and then I was so excited that it worked… The sticks stayed in place….ahhhh ha…
I m so intrigued with these silver point quartz I used. I have used them in many projects and have seen them used alot. But I wanted them to stick straight out of the panel and make a statement. I dont know how many times I just touch them in awe of them. I think they are so cool.
I wanted them to stand out on this painting, so I painted a iridescent pearl white behind them which made them glow and gradated the darker silver colors to the top. I wanted the top to also look like a sky with lightning where the silver point quartz is the earth and they were coming out of the earth.
The red represent the veins or blood of the earth or heart of the earth if you will. It can also represent pain and the red blood, where the quartz is so spiky and rough as well and how powerful that can be.
I wanted the sides to be the middle of the earth and have the roots, veins and blood coming from them.
The painting is sharp, rough, deep, powerful and intriguing to me I hope you enjoy the emotion in it as well.
