“EARTH” Now Available as a New Fine Art Print

EARTH by Rob Schouten 

Now Available as a New Fine Art Print

I was honored to model for this incredible painting by Rob Schouten

EARTH is one of the paintings in Rob’s Elements Series, this piece depicts Mother Earth who is sleeping beneath us, dreaming our dream, continuously giving rise to life. Her soul is in touch with the core of the planet, the building blocks of physical existence, whose fractal nature is expressed in the shape of the rock in her hand and the mountains behind her; mountains whose forms in geological time are fluid as blankets.

This gorgeous fine art print of Rob’s new painting, EARTH is now available. It is printed on archival quality canvas with permanent pigment and is quite stunning.

The print itself is 18″ x 28.75″, and the price unframed is $400. 

Rob has framed the print in a beautiful cherry finish frame, which is a narrower version of the frame around the original oil painting.

The framed print size is 23″ x 33.75″ and the price $580 

We can easily ship anywhere. Shipping charge on a framed print would be $30, an unframed print’s charge would be $15.

For more information or to order your print call the Rob Schouten Gallery at 360-331-7099 or 800-858-5063, or email

A Blessing on Thanksgiving

A Blessing on Thanksgiving

For the gift of every unknown effort
that became this food;
every seed sown,
ray shone,
rain blown,
giving the nourishment
of their elemental bodies
to plants
and animals
who now nourish our bodies
with their own.

May we in kind
and kindness
give of our whole selves,
with the knowledge that
Every gift
is an essential thread
that unites us all
in a web of thanks-giving.

~Vibes to You and your Beloveds,
