Wish Painting (Nasturtium Flower)

emilia kallock, flowers, nature, paintings

Leading from the heart, and remembering to do so in challenging times. A wish for the health of the forests, and for all animals that they may have access to humane living conditions . Little wish squiggles of other beautiful things. Topaz, olivine, and other precious gems. A friend took pictures of me in recumbent poses for figure guides. A giant nasturtium flower in the background painted with pigment I bought in Vietnam. Tree saplings on either side of the flower, symbolizing hope for the future. I actually watered a bunch of saplings yesterday, so maybe art mimics life or life mimics art-

I finally completed this painting today, happy with the glitter as finishing touches.  The work is based on when one has an event that brings one to their knees, and re-organizes life in a new paradigm because of the impact.  It signifies both the humbling and new beginning aspect of the occurrence.
