“Discovery” is a visual account of this month’s blog post – and my life.
Art was the first form of communication (think cave paintings) and it is still the most revealing one for many artists today. What started out as my own organic depiction of all things womanly (inside and out) quickly morphed into a direct expression of my immediate experience.
In other words, the art and its direction evolved dramatically from start to finish…as did I.
As women, we nurture, we cry, we shed and grow life, in an ongoing transition that is painful and achingly beautiful, all at once. From the moment we come into this world, our bodies support and betray us in an ongoing process that eternally unites us with every other woman born on this earth. As sexual beings, our life and body changes are rites of passage to be embraced or mourned; either way, they have one primary theme: that of Discovery.
I hope you enjoy my painting, and discover something in it that resonates for you.
Yours in loving ourselves through all the changes,
