After a long hiatus I am back at painting.  A trip to Labrador and Newfoundland was wonderful, but now I am glad to be back in the studio and working on a new painting.  Months ago, I asked my niece to pose for this piece.  She held a plastic milk bottle in the photos. 
I'm not sure how I will title this piece, but it's function is to suggest that the earth, or Gaia as represented by this young woman will heal itself in spite of all the the terrible things we have inflicted upon it. 

She contemplates an egg shaped glass terrarium which holds all of the new life that will restore the earth. She stands in a fiery matrix, which is to represent the scorched earth.  I am searching for a title to make all of this clear to the viewer.
