EUCALYPTUS is the fifth painting in the Mother Earth series about the strength and vulnerability of nature and humanity. The female figure symbolizes the spirit of Mother Earth and the symbolism of the natural objects pertaining to the state of our environment. The black and white birds represent the duality and balance in nature and in ourselves as consumers and stewards of the Earth. The covering of her eyes and mouth are both the gagging and blooming of her creative energy. I chose eucalyptus leaves wrapping around her arms because eucalyptus is known for its healing and purifying properties as we continue the struggle to heal the wounds of the Earth, we as humans have created.
Oil on Canvas, 30x48x1.5 inches/76x121.92cm
My Mother Earth Series is painted with richly pigmented water-soluble oil paints made by Royal Talens, a paint company that is committed to sustainability. I paint on cotton canvases that I texture myself with a heavy-bodied gesso and each canvas has a 1.5 inch wood frame.
Oil paintings take extra care in packing and shipping. I will cover the cost of having each oil painting professionally packed and secured in wooden crates. You will need to cover the cost of shipping. Contact me to discuss shipping & delivery.
