This painting is one of my favorite surreal landscapes. I titled it “Gnosis”, which is the ancient greek word for knowledge. This piece is meant to be a reminder that we are part of nature. It’s so easy to go through life, get caught up in all the day-to-day stuff, and forget this fact.
I love surrealism. It’s a style that lends itself well to illustrating the connectedness of things. With this in mind, I merged human faces with the tree and the earth. I placed an abstract face in the top left corner to represent the part of ourselves that is on the inside - the subconscious we can’t see but know is always there.
You'll also notice the ears merging with the landscape. I added these because I believe we need to listen to our deep connection with nature more. Considering how our climate is changing, I think this is especially relevant in today’s world.

I ship with USPS First Class Mail or Priority Mail depending on the weight. I package my fine art prints in clear archival poly bags. Then, depending on the size, I either ship the print rolled securely in a tube or laying flat in a bubble pack envelope with rigid mat board supports. All orders are insured and will be replaced if damaged during shipping (but this rarely happens!). You will receive a tracking # when your order ships.
I ship with USPS Priority Mail or Fedex depending on size. I package my original paintings with extra care. Each painting is wrapped in a layer of foam wrap. After which, it is sandwiched between two sheets of cardboard and secured with tape. This cardboard/painting packet is then wrapped with bubble wrap. It is placed in a heavy duty cardboard box that has at least 2 inches of space around the painting where I add more bubble wrap and/or bubble bags. All orders are insured. I've shipped all over the world and never had a painting damaged in transit (knock on wood!), but if it were to happen, I could paint another similar piece to replace it or refund the order total. You will receive a tracking # when your order ships.
