Gaia Mother of Earth

A Classically inspired image of the Earth Goddess, Gaia, dancing with the atmosphere & awaiting to give birth to all of the potential the world has to offer!

*SIZE: 24" x 30"

*GROUND: Stretched canvas

*MEDIUM: Oil paints with safflower oil

*MAIN COLORS: earth tones; red oxide (Cadmium Red Deep with Burnt Umber), Prussian Blue ( a vintage deep color not available today), Phthalo Blue, Naples Yellow Hue & Raw Sienna (cream skin tones), Burnt Sienna, Titanium White

*FRAME REQUIRED?: No, but can be framed for a less contemporary style choice. The painting has a deep red and earthy orange border painted nearly all the way around, covering the edges. The black border, as in photograph, is not in the actual artwork

*TEXTURE: smooth, textural brush strokes with areas of wispy scumbling

*SIGNATURE: on lower left with partial title "Gaia", dated 1/3/4
