often times in life, we fight the inevitable, and change, as well as, our pain and/or circumstances. at times, we get in our own way. at other times, we go to extremes and wallow in our grief and sadness. there is a balance to be found, in all things. this painting was sketched quite some time ago and i am so pleased to have completed her over the weekend. she symbolizes much for me, personally. she is strength, she is love. she is the Empress. she sheds a tear for herself, for you and for all. she symbolizes humanity and the window symbolizes an opening to a new way, to a way of peace and love. a way into new experience and creativity. it is birthed inside of her and only needs a shred of light to be seen for her to know that all is good. it's on its way to her, to you, to all of us.
