A Surreal Painting... My Mother My Sun My Moon

A Digital Mom Painting.. My Mother My Sun My Moon

Mother, my mother, your mother, our mother. Mother Earth. Every mother everywhere. Symbolized by the strength of granite, the fire of the sun, the guidance of the moon, and the ferocity of the lionfish.  
All my thoughts while I was making this painting were about my own mom and the years she dedicated to caring for her children, which, were really most of her life.

Originally, this artwork began as a little pencil sketch I did while hanging out with a mother friend of mine at a Hyde Park Bakery and Cafe in Austin. We'd go down and play our guitars together at the Elizabeth Nay Museum creek and she would bring her daughter along with us. One day it struck me how I had never really considered all the days that my own mom had done that for me, along with all my siblings.

The granite symbolizes the foundation of motherhood, the immovable instinct and conviction every mother has toward caring for their children. It's pointed underneath to reflect how it may hurt, it may hurt you or me, what a mother has to endure to be a mother -

To stand upon this foundation - The foundation of motherhood in my mind is almost a universe in itself, a creation of its own gravity, hovering and protecting us through time, space, and beyond our own imagined eyes.

Hi! I'm Miko, and thank you for checking out my artwork!

I've been painting, practicing photography, 

Miko in art studio working on triptych painting called "Promethea," a three part oil painting ocean series.and I've been doing commercial work for businesses and musicans for over 20 years. I've been drawing ever since gradeschool, and have never been let down from the daily practice of making art. My passion for creativity has led me naturally into sharing what I paint and photograph with the world, first through just drawings for friends, and eventually, into Art Shows I learned to produce and promote to sell my original paintings.

My gallery here is an ongoing hand crafted & built showcase of what Artwork means in my life. Keep checking back as I am continually adding the personal stories to each of my paintings, and putting up new sections of this art space for you to enjoy. If you want to connect through Instagram or my Facebook Page you're more than welcome, since it's easier to post different pictures of what I work on there. I have a wide variety of my Print / Merch Artwork I've created and uploaded to my Fine Art America page (link below) if you are looking for a perfect gift for you or a loved one, and the other links let you see some of how I enjoy playing music, doing art tutorials, and working on my motorcycle. Look forward to hearing from you!
