Pockets Filled With Hope

I dreamt about this painting for weeks. I almost felt haunted by it when I wasn’t in the studio. I am absolutely thrilled on how this painting “Pockets Filled with Hope” turned out.

Painting titled “Butterflies”.

I wanted to create a painting that felt joyful and free. In some cultures butterflies represent #endurance, #change, #hope, and #life. What a beautiful metaphor.

I’ve been hanging back from posting on my IG account the last week.

There is collective grief that feels so tangible and live. I’ve cried, felt shame, held space for others, felt helpless, and hopeful. I have been hanging out in my own emotional soup. The empath in me wants to help and heal everyone. So, I’m starting with myself. I’ve been sitting and looking within. Honestly, some of what I see isn’t pretty. However, I will continue to grow, learn, and lead with compassion. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Time for us all to be that change. We are witnessing the start of something beautiful. Yes, there have been lots of ugly but we are evolving in our humanity in our unity consciousness. I’ve been to so many protests over the years for different beliefs. This feels like a true (r)evolution. equality is a right.

Guess, I should talk about this painting! I had a dream that looked similar to this painting several weeks ago. After looking up the meaning of butterflies, I found out that in some cultures butterflies represent endurance, change, hope, and life.

This painting is titled “Butterflies“, 40 x 40 inches, Acrylic Paint on Canvas. To COLLECT reach out for more details.
