"To Become"

I’m so happy to be able to offer TWO items this week! Prim & Whimsy Girls, an ebay art group I so proudly belong to, came up with an art challenge to welcome June & all sorts of blossoming somethings. Our theme is ‘Art in Bloom’ & we’ll be offering our items on eBay June 1st-7th.

This painting, titled ‘To Become’ is my second piece of art for the challenge. (View Caroline in the post below.) This is an original acrylic painting on 16″ x 20″ canvas. She was based loosely upon the idea of the ‘Green Man’.


This is the Wikipedia article about Green Man:

A Green Man is a sculpture, drawing, or other representation of a face surrounded by or made from leaves. Branches or vines may sprout from the nose, mouth, nostrils or other parts of the face and these shoots may bear flowers or fruit. Commonly used as a decorative architectural ornament, Green Men are frequently found on carvings in churches and other buildings (both secular and ecclesiastical).

The Green Man motif has many variations. Found in many cultures around the world, the Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities springing up in different cultures throughout the ages. Primarily it is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, or “renaissance,” representing the cycle of growth each spring. Some speculate that the mythology of the Green Man developed independently in the traditions of separate ancient cultures and evolved into the wide variety of examples found throughout history.

Details of the painting:




I am so absolutely pleased with how she turned out! She is sealed in varnish, has painted sides & is signed on the side. She also comes with a certificate of authenticity.

“To Become” will be available on eBay June 1st at 9:15 PM EST. She will end June 8th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to view or bid on this lovely painting!

    She is quite beautiful and I love the explanation about the green man motif..And I must say your last two dolls are fantastic as well..I just love the one with the red poppies!

    Thank you so much! I had so much fun this week creating the doll & then the painting. The painting began as a doll idea. But I couldn’t quite figure out how to make the image in my head work for a doll…so I painted the mask instead.

    You’re the queen of masks though!!! I’m always amazed when I see your new dollies. They’re so intricate & chic. Just lovely.

    (Thank you for the sweet compliments.)

    Hi Rebecca-
    I like your painting, great mask! When I was in Italy it was like a game to find the greenman in stone carvings churches and there were some carved into the heavy wooden doors. Very interesting as every one was different!
