Pieces of a Birch Tree keep appearing near my front door.My friend, Renee told me that Birch wood is a Native American symbol of “new beginnings”.I felt compelled to use the Birch wood that came to my door. I cut out heart shapes and attached them to the backside of the Birch wood panels that I have been painting for an upcoming art show. To me, the birch symbolizes joy, kindness and love and it feels like a little gift from Mother Nature. I am forever an optimist. The paintings on the Birch wood panels started on the darkest, coldest days of winter when I hoped that Spring would come sooner. I started painting in early January. I strove to paint playful color and dashes of modern day patterns contrasting the personality of each flower arrangement.I painted 18 individual pieces and utilized fluid acrylics and watercolors in places.I have also included a butterfly in each piece. The butterfly is there to remind you of your wonder!I believe each one of us has the power (much like a flower) to light up the world.We are all equipped to spread happiness, light, color and goodness throughout the land.This exhibit is dedicated to the grandest flower in my garden…my Mom.
I am so pleased with the way they turned out. I feel like the entire body of work needs to belong to a Women’s center of some sort. I feel like they are beautiful as individual works but as a group so much more powerful. I intend to find the perfect home for them…because they are meant to offer new beginnings. There is a higher calling to everything we do. Namaste.
