The Pearl in the Seashell

The pearl in the scallop is a symbol of birth and creation.

The pearl in my painting is a mirror that reflects all that we do not see

in the frame.

This reflection compels your imagination to escape the perimeter of the frame a

nd extend the rich landscape of the painting all around you.

In Greek mythology, the pearl in the scallop shell is the symbol of Aphrodite (Venus) goddess of love,

beauty, passion, birth and renewal.
