About this artwork: From the Internationally Sold '2013 Warrior + Series' this is the Fourth piece titled "Icon" . We are not just one, we carry within us as many molecules as there are stars in the night sky within each the power of a sun. We each of us are caretakers of 46 to 68 trillion cells within our bodies. We go in life with the hearts and love of others. Our choices our direction and inspiration is rarely that of a sole purpose or act when we know family, friends and purpose. It is what in turn we care for that we fight to keep together, healthy, happy and safe. It is what keeps us up at night and wakes us early in the morning. What we represent, and where we come from makes us all a type of Icon. Staying in theme with this concept there are over 150 faces hidden in this piece. Powdered pigment was used during a rainstorm then the painting slowly rotated to form natural striations and variation in color.Raw spices such as honey, cinnamon, rose and coffee were used to create this piece. There is actual plant and herb used in each painting to derive the colors in each of these paintings as a prime pigment for the paintings. Each piece is kept pristine by a special formula which coats and protects the piece, preventing aging and oxidation as long as the painting is kept out of direct sunlight. The artist uses natural inks stains and dyes that he makes himself out of herbs, spices, flowers, fruits and minerals as depicted in more detail in the artist's blog Google Patrick Gorman Pettis Fine Art
