Although they were not painted together, I reckon this little 'Said in Stones' pebble trio and miniature artwork 'We Fall Only to Rise Again' are a match made in heaven! ✨
I love to see Said in Stones collection pebbles and cobbles hanging out with my artwork. Although at first glance the two may seem quite different, they compliment each other beautifully. As creatrix, I find the two disciplines equally compelling, each in its own unique way. The focus, containment and patience required to work with the stones and pebbles appears to be a very different energy than that which is involved in creating a huge, splashy, wild 100 x 150 cm abstract on canvas. And yet the two are not as far apart as they may seem - in fact, they are stablemates and siblings. An inherent part of both processes is the state of space and mindful-yet-open focus I enter when creating; the reflective looking and listening which is as vital to the creation of both types of work as the brush strokes or pen marks themselves. The spontaneous, playful-respectful nature of my working approach means that every canvas or pebble is a singular, unrepeatable moment in time, captured and offered lovingly as a gift to you or the special person you are gifting it onward to...
Here's another example of the inherent compatibility of stones and paintings - 'Birds In Her Heart' alongside Said In Stones pendant SISP045J:
And here's another aesthetically pleasing pairing - 'Making Waves' alongside a few recently completed Said In Stones decorative pebbles:
If you're looking for a truly unique, one of a kind gift or investment purchase for yourself or a loved one, the stones and artwork shown in this post are available to collectors in my webshop at the time of writing. If they've already found their new homes by the time you read this, there are a number of other works to choose from and I add new ones as they are completed. All are created with love and the intention of spreading the message and resonance of healing through creativity.
