Image before framing. Title: "United" (2015) 12"x9", mixed media on watercolour paper
This is a small piece I created as a gift to a young bride and her future husband. The meaning in the image is based on the sacred teaching of humility. It's also my special message to the bride and the young man she is marrying. I wanted to give her something empowering, that would remind her that her voice is as strong as her partner's, that a solid marriage means that no one's voice is ever higher or more important than the other's. In a true partnership, it takes humility and collaboration to create something lasting and bigger than oneself. Oh, and I included Orion's Belt (the three stars) that symbolize direction.
