Shadow Visions

Oil on Panel | 24″ x 36″ | 2011


This painting is about transformation and the possibilities that live in the shadowy places of our lives. She wears a chrysalis and a butterfly around her neck . These are the ultimate symbols of transformation. The shadow of her arm becomes a wing that connects to a magical land hidden in the shadow cast on the wall next to her. Sometimes the biggest gifts in our lives come from the darkest moments. Shadow Visions is about trusting and knowing that there is purpose and magic hidden in those places in our lives we just can’t seem to see yet. The larger message here is to trust that there is magic waiting for you. Personally this painting explores my journey to move to Maui. It was painted in my studio in Maine as if I was seeing into the future I so desperately wanted to create.
