Earthcare, Acrylic Painting by Chris Marshall, Perth WA, SOLD

SOLD

This is a caring sort of ashes to ashes, dust to dust type painting representing the continuation of life - someone, something dies and mother nature plants another in a peaceful, timeless way .... we all must look after the earth, our one and only planet, to enable mother nature to continue her work.

Gaia (Mother Nature or Mother Earth) is everywhere, patiently and tirelessly adapting and healing the earth after endless natural catastrophes and other thoughtless, manmade problems. (Just look at the rebirth of bright green little shoots so soon after major bush fires). So whatever knotty problems we throw at her, Gaia is constantly working to make sure there is always some little thing that is bright and colourful growing. By connecting with nature and becoming more respectful and aware of where Gaia needs our help, we can feed our own souls and feel more alive. In other words, by nurturing nature we are really nurturing ourselves. How cool is that?

It always amazes me just how soon after major bushfires or drought-breaking rains you can see bright, bright green shoots and other pretty little things appear – Mother Nature has such amazing regenerative powers to heal.

I’ve changed my mindset on this canvas from when I painted the first version. It was originally a sort of self-portrait on how I felt at the time using a burnt-out log as my metaphor (unsurprisingly entitled "Burnt Out"!).

I’ve reworked it and “cheered it up” - I'm now focusing more on regeneration and I've changed it's title to "The Healing".

I always say when I am feeling particularly down and jaded that I am going bush to listen to the sounds of silence and regenerate, so that is my new take on this painting. From feeling burnt out you too can connect with nature to nourish your soul and make you feel brighter. If you take some time, slow down, breathe deeply and become part of nature, you’ll be surprised how those healing bright, bright green shoots of resilience and renewal soon appear.
