She of the Transient Land by red-lights She of the Transient Land by red-lights
FULL VIEW WOULD BE BEST!

Triptych
Mixed media on Canvas.
1500x700mm approx

My submission for the "Empowering the Woman within" contest, which can be found here...
[link]

This relates to the theme as is encompasses a number of elements which are present in both my abstract and gestural nude studies, and symbolises the energy sourced driectly from within me.
I work in a very energetic way, everything comes from within my own mind, spirit, vision, and so painting itself is a very empowering occupation for me.

The painting itself, the female form is representative of the spirit of nature, the energy of woman within the land. The spirit of woman is present within each of the elements and the element of "ethher" I believe contains a very potent quantity of the female power.
The Goddess has been present in many cultures, since the dawn of time.
Here she is, unveiling herself, of the earth, of the land.
Transient , yet ever-present, as time.
