Mother Earth
Artwork Size: 60 x 140
Artwork Price: sold
My greatest challenge to date was to create a landscape resembling that of a large rocky island like those found in Georgian Bay, but that island is a woman's body and is Mother Earth.
I have not been a painter of the human form and actually attended my firste life draawing class after Mother Earth was completed.  I loved the challenge of getting the shapes and shadows right and still have the ambiguity of the form that people would often first see the landscape and then upon finding the feet, they would retrace their visual path through the painting and discover Mother Earth in all her glory.
 
This piece was only on display for a short time at the Summit Centre in Huntsville, before it was purchased and now lives in a private collection in Guelph Ontario.
 
Reproductions were done in the form of art cards and are for sale at $5.00
