Earth’s Bounty

 

We live in such a beautiful place! Earth is the third planet from the Sun, and the densest and fifth-largest of the eight planets in the Solar System. It is also the largest of the Solar System’s four terrestrial planets. It is sometimes referred to as the world, the Blue Planet, or by its Latin name, Terra.

Earth formed approximately 4.54 billion years ago, and life appeared on its surface within one billion years. Artistically, from the earth, from the mud, we can create structure. A clay pot, made pliable by water, hardened with fire, becomes a vessel, useful, and of artistic and practical value. We have farmed the fertile soil to provide us with beautiful fruits and crops, whilst its rivers and oceans provide us with more bounty.

We can take delight in the beauty of the earth’s landscape, and the colourful plants and flowers that grow here in abundance. In return for all it provides, we must care for our fragile planet!

Frannie and I have selected the features this week to reflect ‘Earth’s Bounty’, and it is obvious to see that our members delight in what this beautiful, bountiful planet provides.

Please take some time to congratulate the artists whose work is featured today.

Lynda and Frannie

You made a wonderful choice and a great introduction!!

Earth was viewed as the mother of all life growing on it by many cultures. Earth is our only beautiful home, we have no other! Earth is the source of life of all that exists, including humans.Is a great idea to feature artworks that remember us, her beauty but also our duty to care it!!

@Terri, greetings! Thanks so much for coming by to see and comment on the feature. It means a lot.

This looks so good, @Lynda. Great job with the intro, too.

@Mada, you echoed the theme beautifully, in your second comment. It is important to understand the collective
impact of humanity, on the planet. There’s a lot out there about this for anyone who wants to know more.
Each of us can make a difference.

I love how fruits, vegetation, flowers, and even fungus (and pond algae!) are represented in our features today.

Congratulations everyone…and I’m going to borrow Mada’s list: Maria, Geraldine, Linda Callaghan, Gabriella, Linda Ridpath, Constance, Lynda Robinson, Olga, Shani, Ann, Elisabetta and Elena. Hooray!

:D

Thank you Lynda for that wonderful introduction and for including an image of mine in your choice of works. It is so true that the Earth’s beauty is awe inspiring and staggering in its variety and abundance and i feel you have amply expressed this in your gallery choice. Thanks again!

I agree 100% with you: “Each of us can make a difference.”
The original cultures testify the veneration to the majesty of the universe, respect for nature and for each of its representatives.The global ecological crisis stems in large part from the systematic lack of respect for nature and the Earth!
