About this Painting
One night I woke up from a vivid dream and instantly had to paint it. In my dream, my mother was outside in our garden, filled with joy and at one with Mother Earth. She had become the earth. Her being delighted in the soft caress of the dirt and flowers, and her body was muddy, rolling in the flowers and leaves. She was the essence of these magic beings in nature and they grew because of her.
Beside her, my daughter slept peacefully in this garden, safe, protected and completely grounded, knowing that she would grow and thrive in this garden of love.
In reality, this is who my mother is, she is a Keeper of the Earth, and she nourishes my daughter with her very essence.
