The mermaid became a gifted gardener. She discovered that by putting her hands into the earth, she could hear her secrets in the same way she did the sea’s…
This artwork is another that belongs to my epic FISHERMAN AND MERMAID’S TALE series.
Soon after obtaining legs she and the fisherman become great travellers. During this time she also discovers she is a gifted gardener, becoming both a servant of mother earth and a co-creator: She collects seeds but also finds a way to form her own seeds out the experiences she gathers while traveling around the world.
By planting these seeds deep in the forest and around the fisherman’s hut, she brings together in one place, her journeys beyond the fisherman’s home by the sea.
Her wild nature is alive when she is barefoot in the forests and uses her bare hands to dig into the soil. Her hands and feet act as diving rods, sensing where things lay that are waiting to rise out of the earth.
She then draws in the earth’s cooperation to bring the nutrients most needed for each seed to thrive. She is able to talk to the Earth the way she did with the Sea, they are one and the same.
GARDENER is a mixed media drawing with ink, paper collage, watercolor and acrylic paint on high quality fine art paper. There is even Greek coffee applied to the papers surface, a fitting representation of soil.
It comes presented beautifully in an oak finished frame ready to hang in your home or office. The artwork is mounted freely within the frame to best utilise the mix media texture and naturally derived curve of the paper
