This piece was created for an open house event April 13 2019. The theme of the event was spirit. I elected to represent spirit in the form of transformation of oneself. My goal was to show a progression of positive thought. The image to the left has a darker appearance but it is not completely black. My intent was to express that some things can be broken but not everything is bad. To the right of the image the light is shining on the subject. She is peaceful and is wrapped in a shawl that were patterned after swallowtail butterfly wings. Butterflies are thought to be a symbol of transformation.
