"Rise Up" by Lucy Liew

<p>Lucy Liew<br>Dimensions:<br>Width: 60 Height: 48<br>This piece was created during the coronavirus pandemic. I was drawing parallels between the current global pandemic situation and the wildfires when we were "distanced" from our homes, neighborhoods and parks. The fact that fire poppy seeds can lie dormant for years...even decades before being awakened" by a wildfire makes this flower an amazing symbol of strength and beauty in the midst of desolation. I titled this piece “Rise Up” because it depicts a group of fire poppies rising up from the ghostly remains of a charred barbed wire fence, free from whatever had been restraining them. These ghostly remains are symbolic of whatever might be holding us back or making us feel trapped. It is a reminder that we can rise above these situations with the help of friends, family, or others.

"Sentinel" by Lucy Liew

<p>Lucy Liew<br>Dimensions:<br>Width: 36 Height: 36<br>Venerable oaks and rolling hills are important elements in my work, symbolizing strength, and survival. I chose to title this piece “Sentinel” because it can describe both the object, and the action of watching over a place. In 2004, Congressional passage of a historic bill officially designated the oak as our National Tree. In the words of Arbor Day president John Rosenow “Having oak as our national tree is in keeping with the wishes of the hundreds of thousands of people who helped choose this striking symbol of our nation’s great strength."<br>Pickup location: San Jose, Contact the artist: Lucy@LucyLiewArt.com, Shipping available.&nbsp;Also available as Giclee print on canvas.</p><p><br>Contact the artist: Lucy@LucyLiewArt.com<br><br>See more about this artist at the <a href="https://svos.org/artist.php?id=1667" target="_blank">SVOS online directory for Lucy Liew.</a><br>Or see the artist's website: <a href="http://www.LucyLiewArt.com" target="_blank"> www.LucyLiewArt.com</a></p>

"Springing Forth 1" by Lucy Liew

<p>Lucy Liew<br>Dimensions:<br>Width: 50 Height: 50<br>: Springing Forth features California Golden Poppies (Eschscholtzia californica) springing forth from a dark background. Many Californian plants use environmental signals, such as smoke, heat and even chemical changes in the soil to trigger germination. This causes them to "spring forth" when little else is visible after a wildfire. “Springing Forth” also conveys an action. Anyone who has recovered from a disaster, injury, or the loss of a loved one can attest that it is an ACTIVE process that ultimately leaves them stronger and more resilient.<br>Pickup location: San Jose, Contact the artist: Lucy@LucyLiewArt.com, Shipping available.&nbsp;Also available as Giclee print on canvas.</p><p><br>Contact the artist: Lucy@LucyLiewArt.com<br><br>See more about this artist at the <a href="https://svos.org/artist.php?id=1667" target="_blank">SVOS online directory for Lucy Liew.</a><br>Or see the artist's website: <a href="http://www.LucyLiewArt.com" target="_blank"> www.LucyLiewArt.com</a></p>

"Living On The Edge" by Lucy Liew

<p>Lucy Liew<br>Dimensions:<br>Width: 48 Height: 36<br>For Earth day 2020, I decided to make a painting with California poppies dancing at the edge of a bluff overlooking Shell Beach along the Sonoma coast. This painting symbolizes the existential dichotomy of living in California. We may be blessed with glorious weather and incredible natural beauty…but we are also just one spark, one mudslide, or one earthquake away from severe destruction. This idyllic image is a reminder to live each day to the fullest as even these scenic rocky bluffs will eventually tumble into the sea.<br>Pickup location: San Jose, Contact the artist: Lucy@LucyLiewArt.com, Shipping available.&nbsp;Also available as Giclee print on canvas.&nbsp;</p><p><br>Contact the artist: Lucy@LucyLiewArt.com<br><br>See more about this artist at the <a href="https://svos.org/artist.php?id=1667" target="_blank">SVOS online directory for Lucy Liew.</a><br>Or see the artist's website: <a href="http://www.LucyLiewArt.com" target="_blank"> www.LucyLiewArt.com</a></p>
