The Green 2013
16x40 in ~ Painting, Oil
About this artwork: From the Internationally Sold '2013 Warrior + Series' this is the Fifth piece titled "The Green" . The Series is dedicated to those everyday heroes. There are those among us who have chosen to have a life rather than let life have them. These men and women using their strength and self and inspiration to power them through difficulty, and hardship, even doubt and this makes them more than warriors. The inspiration for this piece was chosen because within each of us there is a moment when we know the suffering of being 'new'. And so within each warrior heart there comes a time when all at once to be good at so many things, and so bad at others. To know so much and not know what to do with it. To have so much passion and so little direction, its an ache not so much of being lost but of longing and this is the state of being in the green. 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
