((SPRING CLEAN SALE: was $300 ))"Mother Earth can be dark, by human perception anyway, and very destructive. Constantly Waring against human waste and pollution, her corrections can seem wrathful. I had no idea I was painting this Mother Earth when I started swirling random colors on the canvas, nor even when I washed over it with a bright yellow so it had a filmy look to it, or when I whited out one corner and reded out the other. No, she did not reveal herself to me until I was looking at the chaos left after the last background layer was splattered in grey, white, and red. If canvases could talk, she'd have told me to paint it for the Dark Hearts. So, with a goose-feather paint-quill I made, I penned it on the canvas within her wing's embrace. Her wings are a black sparkle with gold lining so, the matte black used for the rest appears an almost charcoal next to it."-M.E.
"Aloha! My name is Mandy Elliott and I'm a self-taught Artist originally from the Space Coast of Florida and now residing in the Heart of Virginia. Creating isn't just a passion for me, it's a part of me. I come from a background of artists, musicians, mechanics, engineers, and carpenters. One thing we all have in common is an ability to imagine something and then make it real. Some of us also share the ability to understand what others imagine and make that real. We are inventors and innovators. It's those skills which got me through a troubled home, and gave me success in the corporate world from Sales to Escalations Management. None of that fulfilled me though, and I had to ask myself why I limiting myself when I could unleash myself into something I love? Art. I'd been creating and selling my Art since 1998, but in 2010 I dove in to the part of me that creates from the inside. I've showcased in Melbourne Florida, Orlando Florida, Historic Kissimmee Florida, Cincinnati Ohio, and since September 2016 I have Artwork in an Earth Art collection in Space, courtesy of NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission to the asteroid Bennu. #WeTheExplorers ... I watched NASA launch shuttles from the Cape, viewed from my back yard as a kid, and now I have Art in Space. I'd say my life is complete but... creating Art isn't something I can just turn off anymore. I am an Artist." -M.E. ______________________ _______________________ [[ All artworks protectively sealed, ready to hang, professionally shipped with a certificate of authenticity (CoA), Artist Pamphlet, "Talking About Art is Hard..." greeting card to give insight and talking points about your specific painting(s), and a hand written note from the Artist.
