Bringing in ELEMENTS of the earth into Fine Art
My “Elements” series is a creative blending of semi-precious stones and unique pieces of the earth with traditional fine art. I love finding and using things that were created by nature such as semi-precious stones and sea shells, using them in unique and creative ways.
“I’ve never seen anything like it” Is the biggest comment I get.
The semi-precious stones I use in my Elements series come from all over the world from various sources. Most of the stones I use have been collected throughout the year in order to work out my compositions and then incorporate them into my paintings.
Each semi-precious stone has individual properties generating energetically from the stone. My semi precious stones paintings will illuminate and fill your room with there energy where the art will hang.
I encourage people to touch the stones on the art to resonate with its properties. In my semi precious stone art I include properties of the stones with the descriptions. Some stones are healing, energizing, loving, and calming. Some resonate with different chakras and evoke emotions.
I love working with and showcasing the unique beauty found in each semi-precious stone. I hope you enjoy these unique works as much as I enjoy creating them.
ZINCITE Olawa Silezia Poland: Zincite, natural – not laboratory grown, comes from Poland, where it forms in the smokestacks in the factories. It varies in color: Clear, Green, Yellow, Red….etc. Due to pollution impact on the environment, Polish authorities have ordered all smokestacks to be cleaned out and processes to be improved. Our source in Poland tells us that all Zincite has been harvested from the smokestacks, and no one knows when or if it will form again.
Zincite is a very rare mineral, and has been found in New Jersey, but only as very small, grain-sized crystals.Poland is also a source of this mineral.They formed by an unexpected accident where the conditions became just right within large smoke stacks at a Zinc smelting facility in Poland, forming these fantastic crystals which grow attached to the insides of the smoke stacks.
Born in fiery flames, crystalline Zincite is an excellent stone for transformation and alchemicalizing your life. It anchors the light body in to the physical realm, assists in fulfilling karmic agreements and soul evolution, and synthesizes physical energy and personal power. Assisting the manifestation process and re-energizing depleted systems, Zincite removes hypnotic commands and energy blocks and encourages free flow of life force.
