Wishing you a cozy Winter!

Nourishment II | 60" x 48"

Patricia-DeLeon

60" x 48”  |  Mixed media on Baltic birch with gold + silver leaf |  framed with a 1.5" floater frame


The painting is finished with a UV protective varnish.

The vessel is an object both utilitarian and ancient.  Made for human interaction and handling, the vessel is a representation of our spirit and our physical form. 
These Spirit Bowls are nesting within each other, each with their individual textures, markings + colors.  I like to think of them as a representation of each of us:  filled with our individual essence, able to transmit nourishment to ourselves + others.  Looking at the stacked bowls in my studio reminds me of the natural order of community; as we hold + support each other our potential for both inspiration and practical functioning unfolds and grows.
