Elemental Movements, paintings by Polly R Branch

The landscape reveals color, direction, time of day and season.    Our relationship to the elements of the Earth influences who we are, and how we see and explore life.

The view in the blue/green painting, faces east in the cool light of a spring midday so there are few warm tones yet.  In contrast, the view from the top of a ridge facing north is already warmed by morning light.


Welcome to Polly’s pages.

In the cave where fairies are made she releases them into the waters.

Silently the fairies glide and swim by....

  “The Ocean is the beginning of the Earth. The Ocean is the beginning of the Earth.  All life comes from the Sea.  All life comes from the Sea”…..repeat.

If we are spirit beings having a human experience, then the art of song/ chant, dance, poetry, painting, sculpture… might just be what gives us a language to reconnect to where we came from.    Illustrations for a story book; Tales of Our Beginnings. lammas and penny illustrations 009
