CAMELIA is the first painting in the Mother Earth series about the struggle with preserving and restoring the environment. The female image is symbolic of Mother Earth and each plant, insect, and animal has its own symbolism related to the natural cycles of death and decay, growth and rebirth, what is naturally occurring and what is unnaturally occurring in the environment. In this painting Mother Earth is essentially gagged and oppressed but she still speaks through the symbolism of the white Camelia, a symbol of maternal love.
Oil on Canvas, 36x48x1.5inches/91.44x121.92cm
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.
