Essence and Power - Vol 1

Mon Aug 18, 2014, 5:59 PM


Her story goes something like this; In the beginning, 3 primeval elements where conceived from chaos. Gaea (earth), Eros (fertility) and Tartarus (the deep underworld). Gaea then conceived, without male intervention, and gave birth to the Sky, Mountains and Sea. I don't want to bore you guys to much with the mythology of Gaea, as the main thing about her is that she was earth and gave birth to earth and everything on it. She is what we refer to as mother nature. you can read more about the mythology at…

Prayers of mother nature by mrNepa Motherland Chronicles #51 - Erin by zemotion  Mother Nature by kelogsloops


To me Gaia is everything. She is the source from which everything sprouts, and so in death everything returns to her. She is the ever lasting eternity that is life. But this is by no means a bout beliefs or spirituality, well maybe a little bit...

If I have to describe the essence of Gaia in one word, it would be ART. As the core essence of Gaia is creation, what else can it be but pure art. It is a unseen force all creative minds can tap into and from it bring forth works to inspire a following. It is something we can feel, like it is guiding our hands - showing us exactly what it wants to be. What it is she wants to show the world. 

Gaia by archanN Gaia by sanguisGelidus Gaia by R3V4N Mother Nature by SilentPlea Gaia by pete-aeiko


As Gaia is the source of all creation, she surely needs servants, no disciples, to show to the world the beauty that is Her. She chooses them in all shapes, forms and expertise. Some of which are artists. She blesses individuals with immense imagination, so they can paint the stories that would otherwise go untold. Masterpieces are conjured up with divine energy received from only one source. Works that are put into the world, for all to behold the vast beauty that she has gifted upon this world. It should be a true honour for each one that receives this blessing, for it can mean the beginning of a whole new reality.

So... I'm Leana de Klerk. I'm lucky enough to beable to actually only do my art and survive with it. I'm not by any means rich from it, but I survive...

The two things I do for commissions is covers for novels and then just plain photo manipulation things... You know the type where you tell me what you want and I make it...

My prices are negotiable, but here are the normal rates:

one model + bg ->>> $50
one model + bg + unlimited extra painting ->>>>$100

$10 per extra model added

I am also a mentor and part of the mentor ship program at Photomanip101
