Harvest of Love
Pastel 41 x 57 cm
Before working on my “Green WoMan” oil painting, I needed to create a study in pastels to form a base composition to work from. Originally I planned to depict a Woman and Man rising like phoenix’s from the Earth, bringing new fruits to our world. In the process of creating the pastel, that concept changed to one of celebration of the Harvest through Love: my love of working in partnership with Mother Earth and the loving partnership of myself and Lethea, Male and Female, WoMan. I had just harvested these fruits and vegetables from my garden, and we’re approaching the Autumn Equinox when we have invited 10 dear friends to share in our Feast of Celebration, so I guess all those factors influenced how this painting emerged.
