“We spend a lot of time on the Ogeechee River. After the fish kill in 2011, much of the wildlife just disappeared, all being affected by the kill. What I missed the most were the turtles. We used to see them stacked up on the tree limbs sunning themselves. As out boat approached some of them would slide off into the water. Sliders eat bugs, small fish, aquatic plant and decaying things.”
The Slider is a part of the Icon Series by Lind Hollingsworth which focuses on the supporting roles of small creatures in our ecosystem. 2D mixed media relief painting, 12x12, framed. Complimentary shipping within the Continental U.S.
“The construction of the icons uses my mixed media technique of creating a low relief by building up rag paper, mat board, spackling and paper based clay. Paint and generous amount of metal leaf embellish the relief images of flora and fauna. In iconography, frames play the important role of separating the heavenly from the earthly. In the spirit of that concept, great care and thought has gone into the selection of the frame for each piece. In the end, I hope the icons are objects of beauty that will inspire belief in the glory of nature and the will to preserve it.” - Lind Hollingsworth
