Candela by Karol Fern Sample


Oil on Canvas, 14" x 11" For sale.

She is a combination of different traditions of myth and deity... She came to me out of an organic process and introduced herself as a "Candela" or Eventide (High) Fairy.. I am happy to learn (and now I remember) that this posture is similar to Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth. High Fairies are like angels and goddesses both, are less mischievous than other fairies, and actually help as overseers of other fairies. Candelas are very fond of humans and are skilled in healing human bodies..they travel the globe mainly at night and bring comfort and peace to the humans whom they visit. There are often unexplained healings whenever a Candela has anonymously paid a visit to an ailing human.. I believe they also bestow good fortune on their human hosts as well..which would explain her Lakshmi-like pose. Her "wings" were another intuitive gesture that I later understood as the Eye of Horus, only abstracted to create a sort of windblown hairstyle that denotes psychic vision. This entire painting was a clairvoyant experience that filled me with immense peace and pleasure. :)) Also, her hairstyle is also all about if she is lit up like a candle. Candelas tend to glow like fireflies as they travel..

Artist Statement
for Karol Fern Sample
Karol Fern SampleAlthough I reside in Seattle, Washington, I live in a world completely inhabited by my own inner landscapes, archetypes, characters, and personal mythologies. My artwork brings this world out into the light and breathes life into the only place that I really fit in. As artists, you may agree that you don't necessarily need to explain images, you just need to feel them. It's great to be able to share my work here :)))
have you ever done a piece that you don't understand and even when finished you have no idea how to interpret?
This really is a lovely piece Maria. When I look at it my mind wants venture in a bunch of different directions. I am not generally drawn towards the abstract... view answer
