Symbolism: Among many other layers of ideas, this painting is a visual representation of creative and emotional sovereignty. Creating it was an exploration of what it means to be a conscious, creative being that flows with the wisdom of emotions and assumes her inner places of creative power, freedom and responsibility without deferring to an outside authority. Set in one of the most violently beautiful places on earth, the jutting granite giants of Yosemite that formed under inexplicable energy and pressure loom in the background to demonstrate the immensity of the creative forces at play. In yoga traditions, the second chakra, or energy center located at the womb, is the center of creativity, pleasure, relationships, fertility and emotions and is called svadhisthana, which translates to mean 'one's own dwelling.' The rose, with its radial symmetry and vibrant color, is associated with the planetary transit of Venus, along with goddesses and symbols of love and sensuality. The flower is how I hope to exist, with my head, heart and depths moving as one, cohesive entity, with all my actions and offerings springing from that wholeness. I want what I do with my hands and where I go with my feet determined from an intentional, unified place that is informed by what is wild and true— to live in the state of balance and brilliance I suspect happens when one is a conduit for some deep essence. The egg speaks of rebirth, creation, and potential. If you look closely, you will see that it has a tiny crack, which is a nod to the words of Leonard Cohen:
"Ring the bells that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering,
There is a crack, a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in."
The hummingbird hovers close to be first to see and perhaps communicate what will emerge long before daylight reveals its contents. In the shamanic medicine wheel traditions of South America, the hummingbird is associated with the North direction, the realm of myth and symbols, and the soul level of perception which sees through images, dreams, poetry and music. It is a symbol of courage, joy and divine sight. With its ability to move freely between water and land, the frog reveals how to exist in the liminal spaces between the fluid, emotional realms and the earthy material world and has been a personal guide on many meditative journeys through my inner landscape.
