    Mother Earth. Watercolor pencils.

    Just finished this last night.
    I bought an expensive set of water color pencils and never used them till now. I was experimenting and wa-la it turned into this:
    (Sorry about the watermarks. People steal others' art online, that's to protect it.)

    Mother Earth


    Symbolism
    Snake- feminine, fertility
    Brown skin- earth, dirt
    Green veins- mimic roots, plants, life
    Blue and purple background: Air and Sea

    That's beautiful, Aga!

    Random aside: When I first saw it, I thought, "Oh, look - my chest while pregnant..."
    (Naturally pale skin and ginormous blue veins don't mix )

    Thank you, Proxieme .

    I can't say I know what you're talking about cause I've never been pregnant, but I can imagine.

    Ohhh, I should explain, then:

    When you first get pregnant you start to gear up for lactation which really increases blood flow and makes your veins prominent (it did for me, anyway).
    That was actually my first clue (other than an inkling) that I was preggers - looking down and seeing my new rootish pattern.

    I never knew that.
    It fits with what I was going for though-- nuturing earth. Ha. Pretty cool.
