Earth Goddess by thereseldavis Earth Goddess by thereseldavis
Oh, Goddess. Oh, Mother! You have kept me all these years and I have neglected you. Rest now, Goddess Earth, for I shall now keep you.



Wow, this was an ordeal. I think I have been working on this for about 2 weeks off and on again. Lately I've been pre-occupied with thoughts of our planet's state of being and how we have treated her over the course of our existence. We haven't exactly been kind to our Life-giving Mother. If don't take care of her now, she won't be able to care for us in the future. It isn't the planet we are killing but ourselves. Nature will correct herself after we are gone and she will go on.

This is AMAZING, an absolutely stunning piece for sure! I really love how celestial and mystical the piece feels, from the pose to the lighting and the colours. I really like the fact that you have her trying to touch and embrace all parts of nature, and you made her look beautiful and royal while still remaining true to the natural aspect of her. Fantastic use of textures too, it looks like a combination of oil paints and water colours, and her face has such depth as a result. I really like this, you did such an awesome job.

Wow, I am glad that I interpreted your goal correctly, I have been so off on that with other artists lately. Perhaps you are just special :hug: You are very welcome for the comment as well, I feel that wonderful art, where it's obvious that the person who did the piece put their heart and soul into it, deserves such comments.
