Illumined I – new symbolic animal art

Dieren symboliek ~ spirituele schilderijen Marjolein Kruijt

After half a year I finished the first painting ‘Illumined I’ of my new series of  ‘free’ paintings on a large size 120×80 cm. Its weaving all my interests together: nature, animals, crystals, angels, mystical knowledge, all with a spiritual sense. It’s a painting for and by the heart. Each of the ten birds have a specific meaning. Which, I don’t share yet, for now I wish to let the message speak for itself.

This series is not a new style that ‘just happened’.  It’s a mixture -or result- of many genre’s I’ve been exploring last 20 years. Like my mystical English landscapes (1999>), Celtic symbolism in my art academy graduation series in lithography (1998>) and animal symbolism/artwork (1999>) and my music paintings (1996-1997). In my archive you can see a small selection of that. (keep scrolling down there)

If you’d love this symbolic style in a custom made petportrait of your pet, don’t hesitate ask me for the possibilities!

Soon I’ll upload my recently finished pet portraits in commission (made in my classical painting style) of cats and dogs. Click here to read more general information on portraits in commission.
