Earth Mama

Watercolour pencil in VAPD, A4 size

Inspired by the IMT prompt: "Green". There's a little bit of glare from the scanner.

I know, strange interpretation.

And a strange prompt, actually. All these events in regards to the environment have been popping up in my life lately, and all within a period of less than five days:

Cleaning my room (well, that was a conscious decision) and consequently filling garbage bag after garbage bag with paper for recycling; a random entry for the Waste As Art competition through the mail, and then IMT has a prompt that in honour of Earth Day that will be occuring this week (April 22). I honestly never knew it was going to be Earth Day this coming Wednesday, which is why I am quite freaked out.

I wonder what the world has in store for me with all these hints.


  1. Hi Sarah,

    I love this interpretation of "Green". We (especially women) are the guardians of this planet as life springs forth from us.

  2. This is a really wonderful interpretation of the theme green. Your drawing of a woman's body is very well done and the tree springing from her body really represents women's place as creators and protectors. Well done.

  3. I find this very intriguing. Keep it up.


  4. very interesting..i love the concept.
