Colors of the Earth- Sodalite

Christie Palmer
Christie Palmer
Known for organically integrating landscape and abstraction, Christie Palmer’s acrylic paintings originate from a reverence for the beauty in nature. For her, skies are limitless; with expansive windows facing the mountains, there is an ever-changing landscape outside her studio. Sedona’s monsoon season brings impressive clouds, thunderous skies, and sunsets begging to be painted. Striving to create distinctly original work, Palmer’s observation of the world is anything but ordinary. Whether an expansive landscape or a small object, each is taken to heart initiating a “personal and inspirational journey” to the completed work of art. Palmer reflects “it is that process when complete which captures and stirs the emotion and spirit of the art lover.”

Sedona offers an abundance of beautifully polished gemstones, crystals and minerals. This painting is part of a continuing series exploring these “beauties” that the earth has mysteriously created over thousands of years. Each is said to possess specific properties to enhance our lives. One may find that Sodalite deepens meditation, provides a sense of emotional balance or enhances self-trust and idealism. I am initially attracted by its colors. The painting becomes an response to its invitation to journey within.
