The Spring of Proserphina

Proserpina
Proserpina 12 X 12 collage and reverse painting on plexiglass.

Proserpina is an ancient goddess whose story is the basis of a myth of Springtime. She's the Roman equivalent of Persephone, and her name comes from proserpere meaning to emerge. You can read more about Proserphina here. I am really, really having fun combining my loves of painting and collage in this new medium. So far I've only done fairly small pieces, but as soon as I can find a source of large sheets of plexiglass, watch out!

This is very cool. Would love to see what this looks like in person.
I think you can get large sheets of plexi glass at Home improvement stores.

Beautiful painting! Love those colors. Plexiglas, huh? Interesting. I will have to watch you work on more of these paintings.

Anne said...

Stunning, striking, awesome! I love the strong, hot colors of it, the flower wreath and cool, clear eyes! <3

I love the pink and the yellow most, they beam out from all the other pretty colors. She's a peaceful Persephone, perhaps happy for the half of the year she does get to play in flowers. And those eyes! Pretty pretty.

I realize I'm really late getting here this week, but I am always impressed by your awesome paintings on plexiglass. I know you must think in reverse, something I often have trouble with. Love this piece.
