The digital creation is from an old pastel piece I made several years (decades?) ago from a figure study with a model. I lost the original pastel to time. However, I photographed her before she wandered away.

The figure reminded me of Gaia, the Universal Mother, but I never finished it. So, I scanned the photo and decided to put a 21st-century spin on Gaia. I also found inspiration from the recent images of the James Web Telescope. The question I have is if Gaia is waking up or if she is weeping about the changes to her universe. I see her sleeping, about to wake up and kick some celestial tail. 

If anyone wants a signed copy, I'm printing her on fifty 17x22" Hahnemühle German Etching paper as a 14x21". Place your order here, and I can send her rolled up in a tube. German Etching is s a traditional mold-made copperplate printing paper, complete with an inkjet coating designed especially for FineArt. When it arrives, you'll notice the paper has a curve. It will lay flat once correctly framed.


Alternatively, you can order an unsigned square version 12x12 on German Etching. That's the one with the title on it.

Seize the opportunity to enrich your art collection with this remarkable artwork. Its limited availability ensures that it holds both aesthetic and investment value.


There is a bit extra around the prints to assist with framing them. The larger prints are signed, numbered, and have a Certificate of Authenticity. Write to me if you have any questions.
