ART Focus: “The Spirit of Nature”

her red hair flies in the wind as she contemplates herself reflected in a leafy shoot acrylic on canvas by phoebe thomasson uk artist

I started this painting on my fortieth birthday and as yet, remains unfinished.

She is nature herself, gazing at her own manifestation; the seedling that represents new growth was the budding confidence as an individual coming into her power.

We don’t know we lack personal power until we start to find it. It is that sense of ‘something missing’ that drives us to search. If we don’t search and strive, we never find.

Without our nature intact life has little real meaning.

The way we search is our own unique journey. We cut paths in virgin territory. The paths have never been trod before in the way we will tread them.

We may think that everything has been said before. The spirit of nature disagrees and will always encourage new growth.

Personal growth is the power of everyone. One for all, all for one.

This is the Spirit of the Age; Nature personified.
