Mixed Media Acrylic on 6″ x 6″ Canvas
inner child inner guide
they’re the ones who help you glide
on golden days and sad ones too
they’re always there quite close to you
and though it seems they’re two not one
that’s only gemini having fun
Inner Child, Inner Guide. Keep her close, bathe her in love, get to know her and she’ll return the favor with giggles and play, leading the way through these days, her youthfulness give her strength, pluck, and persistence!
This intuitive mixed media painting was inspired by by butterflies, transformation, covid19, and the masks that were worn and the ones that adorn; although even before coronavirus I recall seeing many masked faces, just not as obvious or as physical as today . . .. it is part of a Brave New World Series inspired by the happenings around the globe this year, 2020, that are having a butterfly effect of bringing us all together as humanity ( is my hope).
From clearer air and skies in parts of the world to dolphins reappearing, from stay at home days of work and school to stepping outside at a distance with face coverings, from deep sorrow, loss, and worry to courage, resilience and standing strong despite the hurdles, we are all in this chrysalis together . . . . masked or unmasked . . . emerging in new ways and shining bright uniquely even as we have a shared experience.
“Guide” emerged on 6” x 6” canvas covered first in layers of paper, prayers, and collage elements, then painted and infused with handcrafted citrine essence dropped into brush water.
