Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Gesso and gold leaf on Canvas.

Mother Earth, Gaia
The third panel is of the Earth Goddess praying to the coastal Redwoods in California. These ancient giants hallmark my teenage memories and high school graduation in the Mount Tamalpais state park. The figure is a self portrait.

Humbled by nature
This series The Elements - Humbled by Nature is a fusion of styles; abstract and figurative, morphing people I know and places I've lived to create my own mythological archetypes in surreal landscapes. I paint on heavy large linen panels which eventually hang loosely, to evoke the feeling of a tapestry.

The original works were painted using acrylic paints and gold leaf on Italian linen in Piemonte, Italy. The Elements were exhibited at theses galleries:
