“Origins of the Feminine Divine 2” - Original Oil Painting by Marilyn Wells
This painting was inspired by my thoughts on the Feminine Divine.
The Divine Feminine is not only woman, though we often express as such. It is any element of love, warmth and caring, embodied in every person who invites these qualities, and is the renewed era we are regaining against the overly aggressive ego tendencies of the masculine which has plundered the earth. We must change the tide or perish on our beloved planet. Embody the Divine Feminine.
20” x 24” oil and cold wax on birch panel
I've been exploring a technique new to me but that's been around for hundreds of years - cold wax. I have always loved the icons of the Middle East and the Orthodox churches in particular, and wanted to introduce more of the rich and broken textures that appear in those icons after a few hundred years of wear and weathering. I am delighted to say I am achieving the results I want, as in this painting, larger than my earlier ones.
This painting is about luxuriating in the beauty of nature and art as they come together in a richly textured surface. The subject matter is mystical and romantic, which appeals to me in many ways.
This oil paintings is a unique art work on 4x primed, heavy canvas. It comes with its own Certificate of Authentication.
