Acrylic paint, paper and ink on canvas
This painting tells the story (only a small part of it) of one girl’s journey. A journey we can all relate to. The journey of self-discovery. The desire to make peace with our past, find meaning and purpose in our present, and have hope for our future. We want to realize and share our dreams, talents and aspirations. Face and release our failures, fears and pain. Love and forgive with an open heart.
Her initial request for this painting was only that she liked blues, greens and purples. But it was her story- her braveness in her personal journey that gave inspiration to this painting. The layers of text paper underneath represent an important part of her life…her amazing creative talents in writing and acting. Acrylic paint on top symbolizes her traveling through this time in her life…through the good, the bad, letting go of certain things and finding new ones. Going after happiness and peace in her life with courage and hope. ?
