First Appearance of the Mountain Elves
original oil on canvas framed in brushed aluminium floater frame. Gemstones added are silver and aquamarine as well as aluminium foil. The silver acts as a mirror to the soul as well as giving one an"advantage" in life. Aquamarine promotes clarity, tolerance as well as calmness.
This was one of a series of paintings I did after a ski expedition in the mountains of Iceland in December when there was very little day light. I felt the presence of the mountain elves who guided our trip from beginning to end.
