Old Mother

(Run your cursor over the image to see the detail. It may take a moment to load.)

I painted this while I was living in Okinawa, Japan. There were a number of huge, beautiful trees there, with complicated intertwangled roots. This picture, of Mother Earth as an old, strong woman, borrowing her body from the trees and knitting a waterfall out of mist, came to me while I was sitting beneath one of them; and I just had to paint it.

The original was oil on gessoed illustration board. The outside dimension of the mat was 16x20 inches. The opening is oval because there was a very nice oval mat cutter at the craft center on base, and it was easier to use than the square one!
