Spirit of Earth (2021)
The Eagle is the spirit's messenger and our connection with divinity, who carries our prayers on its wings to the Creator and returns with gifts and visions. In ancient Greece the eagle was associated with Zeus.
The Eagle is a symbol of Love, it signifies Freedom, Vision and Strength. The Eagle teaches us patience as within the energy of patience, all things become possible.
In Greek mythology, Dolphins were the messengers of Poseidon, the God of the seas. The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that they carried the souls of the dead to afterlife, to the island of Blessed. They related Dolphins to mystical processes of life, death, and resurrection. Dolphins teach us to live in Peace and Harmony.
In Greek, the original language of the New Testament, the conjunction and in the phrase SPIRIT and SOUL and BODY indicates these are three different things.
God’s purpose in creating human-beings with a spirit and a soul was that they would receive Him in their spirit and express Him through their soul.
John 4:24 wrote, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness.”
My name is Ausra. I am a UK masters graduate pharmacist and a self-taught painter. I was born in Lithuania in 1972 and have lived in the UK for almost twenty years where I had studied and worked whilst raising two children.
Since I was a child I had a passion for creative drawing. I remember my mum was worried and she was checking if I was doing my homework or drawing. Later, my drawing time was then replaced by dancing classes. Fortunately, for the past few years I am living my dream doing what I love the most - full time painting in Greece, a country of incredible history and the birthplace of art. My life now is purely surrounded by nature, which is where I chose to live, which allows my endless thoughts to create the most unique and original paintings.
My passion for art is inspired by every beauty on this Earth, incredible nature, cute animals, idealistic figures and unique architecture. Each one of my paintings are created with passion and thoughtful harmony to make the exquisite scenic painting. The bright palettes of colour dominate my paintings which create power and positive feelings. It oscillates between impressionism and realism.
My technique is applying many detailed oil layers and glazes on the canvas which takes time to finish perfectly. My work reflects a sense of symbolism. I strongly believe that a great artist needs to have a special combination of technical skills, creative thinking and strong determination.
“Ausra, you got such immense natural artistic talents. Your oil paintings are truly amazing with the picturesque atmospheric settings & dramatic sunsets, stunning visions of clarity and tranquillity. I must admit in part I was inspired by scenic colours and style in your very own beautiful artwork so I credit you for me painting. 100% for sure I would have your super talented work up on my walls in a heartbeat. Beautiful works, such a great detail you put into your work” Richard B, artist, UK.
