Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

In Native American tradition the frog is often seen as a 'rain maker' perhaps because they are generally associated with the water element and, much like you would often see them when the earth has been cleansed by heavy rains, so they represent purification and cleansing - getting rid of old ways or patterns that no longer serve you or even just clearing old opinions or beliefs and gaining a fresh perspective on things, for example.

As frogs are also a symbol of fertility (or abundance) and rebirth or transformation so it seemed appropriate to have the frog sitting on her spawn. I wanted to keep the cosmic theme running through this series and so I wondered what if, instead of tadpoles, some of the frog spawn contained tiny planets instead!

Please note that for ease of postage this is not framed - the photo of the painting in a frame is only to give you an example of what it would look like framed. The painting will be posted with mounting card backing in a reinforced envelope.
