Artwork Description

Acrylic on wood, ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This is about connection to nature and the energy of this guided life. I have been fascinated by the image of mother and child for a long time. It started with an exploration of the mother and child in the Christian tradition. As a minister's daughter this was a view I had grown up with. As i researched and explored , I became fascinated with imagery of the mother and child throughout time and Goddess imagery. The beautiful connection of life to nature felt delightful and the connection to the natural flow of our world and the spaces we live in, that shape our world became a key part of my art. This mother and child image feels like a space of sanctuary and grace as the light shines around her and mother and child are sheltered and held in this connected moment.

The title of the artwork is the Italian interpretation of the word birth. To give to the light in gratitude. The horizon curves in the distance as the light glows in recognition of this sacred moment in time and space.
This art piece is an intuitive interpretation that is a way of making meaning and feeling my way into the story that is unfolding as this new life is celebrated in the stillness of nature.

Imagine the feeling of sunlight and that grounded connection to nature as you wander through the sunlit fields. Here within these spaces of nature that are calm and open, we feel the freedom of the path in front of us. This is the choice to be present and in wonder and gratitude for the beauty of our world. The young woman walks through the open field with her companion by her side with a sense of freedom and flow as the gentle wind blows through her hair.  The trees gather on the horizon as she moves towards the tree that grows and twists upwards towards the sunlight. There is connected energy here as life invites growth as the sunlight creates a path between them.The Wattle story is a welcoming bright burst of yellow. Trees are a space where we can connect to the Earth and ground in the present moment. For me there is a deep healing in spending time with trees and being in those spaces in nature. A girl stands, just off centre bottom, on the right of the image looking up towards the flow of overhanging wattle in this sanctuary space in nature. Gratitude fills this bright space of possibilities as light dances around her and small purple flowers burst into bloom.An imagined landscape with 3 young women gathering around a central tree. Their are 2 women on the right hand side. One is standing behind the seated figure in the foreground who pats the black wolf companion that sits by her side. On the left is a third younger girl who is holding a book as she observes nature flowing around her.  The scene is set in a sheltered landscape that is a restful space of mindfulness and ease. The tree slightly off center is a home for a variety of birds as life unfolds through the layers of story as each finds their own connected spaces.A corner of the garden, growing wild and free, as abstract flowers bloom and add light, color, and energy to andy space.
