ROSE is the seventh painting in the Mother Earth series about our relationship with the Earth. She speaks through the symbolism of the natural world. The red rose is a symbol of the passion and desire in nature to thrive and renew itself, and the Earth speaks to us with this same depth of passion. Her eyes are covered with the spirals of sea snails which symbolize the bridging of two worlds, land and sea, as well as the bridging of knowledge and ignorance. In her headdress are two white anemone flowers which symbolize the protection against evil, and they also appear as awakened protective eyes. Bats emerge from the belly of the Mother and symbolize family and connection because they are very social creatures who care for each other as the Earth cares for us.
Oil on Canvas, 30x48x1.5inches/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.
