JADE… new addition to Brigitte Balbinot’s new body of work LUMENS

Part of new painting series.. “JADE” oil/cold wax and resin, 30×30″ …
Jade is most valued for its metaphysical properties. It is the ultimate “Dream Stone,” revered in ancient cultures, as well as today, to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve. It is cherished as a protective talisman, assuring long life and a peaceful death, and is considered a powerful healing stone. An amulet of good luck and friendship, Jade signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility, dispelling the negative and encouraging one to see oneself as they really are.


These paintings are meant to bring some clarity and peace into your environment. Think of it as FENG SHUI DECOR!

Is there anyting more pure, more peaceful than the stillness and quiteness of snow falling? I think of the Ice age, and where our planet is headed, and I can't help wonder.. is SNOWgoing to be a part of our evolution once again...?

As our world is at a cross road, and everything around us seem to fall into cahos, how are we going to preserve our earth and what is magical, and beautiful about it? In a world torn between technology advancement and need for preservation, the human race needs to wake up in a big way and come to the realization that this is OUR WORLD and WE are the ones who need to protect it!
