I was asked to create images for a project on diversity and inclusivity. I pondered for weeks as to what to paint, and when I entered my studio, hearts began pouring out of me. I couldn't stop! LOVE is the universal language. It encircles all of us! When I began painting "trust in LOVE", I was tapping into the energy of trusting in Christ--my higher power. Truly trusting Him--because I now believe He IS LOVE. It has taken me years to get there since dealing with memories of childhood abuse. So I chose deep brown metallic paint to give me a sense of groundedness and security. The aqua and blue representing the calmness and peace of ocean waters. Then I added a touch of copper because of its ability to pull higher vibrations into the physical body--and to balance meridians and chakras. And silver for the silver linings in my life--I've had many. I love how this heart floats in my image. It feels heavenly to me.
