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 definitely inspired by the Turquoise Magnesite, they have such a great color and I happened to find these beautiful brown Agate stones that went beautifully together. Yet I do think brown is my favorite color, it is such a great grounding color. I love how rich, deep, grounding feeling the two colors are together.

I think the painting just feels calm and almost recenter you and even grounds you when viewing it.

I wanted to layer the stones like they are in nature, where rocks are sometimes built up and layered and that is what I wanted to do with these stones on the panel to create more depth and dimension with this painting.

I hope this rich painting will give you the same feelings when you look at it and have it in your living space.

 

Stones I used: 

Turquoise Magnesite: is a lovely calming stone that will enhance your meditation, helping you to feel more relaxed. If you meditate with it, and specifically tune into the energy of your heart. It will allow your mind to respond to the desires of the heart.

Yet it is a quite potent stone if used at either the third eye chakra or crown chakra. You may feel a pulsing sensation if you put it on your third eye during your meditation. It aids you to be true to yourself and helps you if you are stressed. It activates the psychic senses and helps you to contact your spirit guide.

Agate: Protection, Strength, Harmony. Agate’s most noticeable properties  overall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming.

Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength in both battle and physically.
