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 inspired by the beautiful Peridot I found. I have always loved Peridot, I would not say green is my favorite color by any means but have always been so drawn to Peridot. Maybe it’s the properties of the stone, the rich green hue of Peridot or just it being shinny but I so love Peridot. So naturally for me I wanted to use it in a landscape and in one of my paintings among the Elements Series.
For this painting I wanted it to complement the colors I used to paint the landscape so it make the beautiful green to complement the sky and water among the landscape rather than do things too abstract or monochromatic using all green paint and all green stones, in hopes of making the painting a bit more interesting to your eye. Plus I wanted to bring in more richness by using metallic paint to blend in the stones and how they are so shinny themselves.
