DAHLIA is the sixth painting in the Mother Earth series about our relationship with the Earth. Dahlias symbolize creativity, change, and dignity. The hummingbird is a symbol of tenacity and endurance. Because hummingbirds move their wings in the pattern of an infinity symbol, they are also a symbol of eternity and continuity. Bats are included because they are very social creatures, attentive mothers, and symbolize rebirth and death. The intertwining Coral and Scarlet King snakes, one venomous, one harmless, represent the many paradoxes in nature; her strength and vulnerability.
Oil on Canvas, 30x45x1.25inches/76.2x114.3cm
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.
