A holiday collection of original watercolor paintings and pendants
Foraged pigments - Earth inspired
About this Collection
Early December. Near-winter in the Northern Hemisphere. The marked beginning of expansive quietude and skin-opening air. The month that is just a month and also a humble return home after many days out and away.
In its manifestation, this work captures subtleties in color, texture, light and mood. In its conception, my heart-felt intention was: SPACE + FLOW. Many of the colors used in these paintings were created with foraged pigments. Each wild pigment began as a rock or stone whose color or texture captured my curiosity. I carefully ground each rock into dust, mulled into paint, mixed it with water and let the magic flow.
Terra Firma serves as a reminder to come back to the earth, in times of trouble and in times of celebration. May all beings stay connected to the vibration of nature and exchange freely with the goodness inside of our floating planet.
All original paintings come with a Certificate of Authenticity and a small glass vial with a sample of the rock or soil I used to create your painting.
