Richness of an Evening

Return to Previous Page
Artwork Story
"This painting was inspired by the richness of the hues at sunset. That small moment when the sun is setting when the sun casts a warm, rich glow upon the landscape of the earth. That is my favorite time of the sunset and of course of the day. I want to capture that brief moment with this painting. I wanted to use the amethyst and garnet because of there richness of themselves and I wanted to tie the two together." -Tesa Michaels Stones Used: Amethyst: Treats insomnia, relives tension, helps overcome grief and loss, brings about spiritual awareness, constricting thinking and acting, good for skin, alleviates pain, lowers blood pressure, releases imbalances. Connects with spirituality and provides contentment. Clears the aura and relieves dysfunctional energy located within the body. Useful during meditation to promote and maintain a calm and peaceful state. Encourages sobriety, promotes sleep and combats headaches. Good for third eye chakra.

Tesa’s Inspiration:
As an artist Tesa is inspired by nature’s abundant landscape. “In my ‘Elements Series’ of abstracts, the semi-precious stones are my inspiration. I am so intrigued by them. They are like snowflakes; not one is the same as another. They are formed by the earth and are old, beautiful and so unique. I love them all. However, I am quite partial to Amethyst, Quartz rough crystals and Agate. The stones are so diverse in their energy and spiritual properties, and their colors and textures. To me they are precious treasures that I want to combine with my art to highlight their beauty in a unique way.”

Tesa Michaels was artistically gifted at a young age, stating “I began to draw first, rather than write. As a fourth generation artist, my great grandpa, grandma, and mother passed on their artistic talents to me.

“I have always been immersed in creativity, constantly finding inspiration while my family has always inspired and encouraged me to be a professional artist. At the age of 12, I painted my first oil painting, and at age 17 I was accepted in my first national show.”

Tesa studied Fine Art and Graphic Design at The Art Institute of Colorado where she earned her degree. Tesa worked in the graphic design field for some time; in printing, as an Art Director for a health products company and in advertising at J. Walter Thompson as an Art Director working on Ford commercials. After some time Tesa re-discovered her roots as a Fine Artist and picked up oils and found her true niche calling. “As an artist I am so passionate about each piece and have so much fun creating art. I learn from every piece I do and I have more ideas than I do time. I have constant creative thoughts running through my head at all times that I only wish I had more time to accomplish what I would like.”

Ms. Michaels is also a member of Mixed Media Artists International and Society of Mixed Media Artists (SoMMA).

Adelman Fine Art is pleased to represent Tesa Michaels and share her talent with collectors worldwide.
