I went ahead and signed this one because I don’t know when, if ever, I’ll get back to it. It’s a nature piece, dealing with the mystical forces surrounding the entity that is Mother Nature, both from a pagan and artistic perspective. She’s never really portrayed as a creature one wants to be around; rather, people would rather just appreciate her children. This is why she is depicted as serious, even of stern visage, in my portrayal of her.
Once again, the vision in my minds-eye did not match what came from my hand, so I will have to keep trying. The exercise in the piece was lighting from multiple sources, the plant, emanating the energy of its birth, the right, and from above, representing the night. One can see faint traces of it in the downward strokes of the background.
Vitals: 18 x 24 acrylic on canvas.
Comments are welcome, more so if they go beyond “this is total rubbish”.
