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. The energy can be felt by wearing the stone, touching the stone and will fill your room where the art will hang.
I encourage people to touch the stones on the art to resonate with its properties. 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.
From the Artist:
This semi precious stone painting was inspired by one of my favorite stones; rose quartz. I love it’s simplistic, light, soft color, and its certain feminine beauty and qualities I feel the stone has. I found the rose quartz in Estes Park Colorado and had to use it in a painting.
I wanted this painting to have the feel of what I feel with rose quartz, serine, soft, calming; thus the name of the painting “Tranquility”. I wanted you to feel that when you look at this piece and have the stones generate that while you are in the room with them. I love the softness in the sky and underneath and then the hard and sharpness of the stones on top which I think creates more depth to this piece while giving you a feeling of peace.
Semi Precious Stones Used:
Rose Quartz; known as the ‘love stone’. Generates the strong vibration of unconditional love, joy, warmth, relationships, and healing. Great for the heart chakra.
Clear Quartz; have been a source of Light to mankind and known as the “master healer” and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz draws off negative energy of all kinds, neutralizing background radiation, including electromagnetic smog or petrochemical emanations. It balances and revitalizes the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz (Crystal Quartz, Rock Crystal) harmonizes all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.
Zeolite; (large white stone at the bottom); natural volcanic minerals that are mined in certain parts of the world. They are formed by a chemical reaction between the ash from the volcano and the salt from the sea, amazing minerals like zeolites are formed in the hardened lava over the course of thousands of years. Zeolites are extraordinarily helpful for absorbing and removing toxins, whether it be in the environment or in a person.
