'The Fields of Abundance.' Pastels and collage. 14" x 10" on watercolour board.
This calls to mind Christina' Rosetti's words -
"Tread softly! All the earth is holy ground.
It may be, could we look with seeing eyes,
This spot we stand on is a Paradise"
The earth is rich in treasures of all kinds, a great web of life that connects all. Insects, birds, animals, minerals, gold and many more wondrous treasures. We take much from the earth, but we must also care for her, lest we exhaust her.
