I've posted previously about the small book I made to go with this set of paintings, but haven't actually posted the paintings before, so here they are. 'The Four Elements', all completed in 2007. They were a difficult bunch, very headstrong with VERY definite ideas about how they wished to be depicted. 'Air' particularly gave me a lot of trouble, and I repainted large sections a couple of times. 'Earth' just turned out completely different to how I intended her to, but after the struggle with 'Air' I figured it was best to let her decide. Worked well, I think. I'll probably put these in my Etsy shop as prints sometime soon. The originals were all bought by one lovely lady, who saved up and paid them off in installments.
That's a lot of breasts all lined up!
And, as I'm feeling in a green mood at the moment...a small green man mask.
Terri Windling. An inspirational painting for me, of a Green Woman, about keeping our connections to the wild (both outside and inside of us) open and free. You can see the beautiful original (and many more of her beautiful and full-of-magic paintings) at her website here.
Better get back to painting...hopefully my experimental glazes will have dried enough for the next layer!
