Colored Pencil on Canson Mi-Teinte Paper.
Drawn from a set-up in my studio, this piece is filled with symbols that represent the need for transformation and new beginnings. Included are: a little hand-carved angel bought in Italy, a bird's nest borrowed from a friend, an egg, feather, twine, a lucky stone and a small shell shaped fossil from the shores of Lake Cayuga in upstate NY.
To me, the message is clear: time to heed the call for rebirth, release the coils that bind you, and let your spirit fly free...even if the journey is difficult.
