you can hear more about this painting in episode 218 of my CANDYcolored studio podcast.
this piece is all about healing with support. the emilie-claire barlow song angels' lullaby is the perfect title and accompaniment to this painting. no matter the change or the challenge, it's important to feel we are supported when trying to heal or grieve a loss or a need for change. the birds in this piece: a roseate spoonbill, finch, hummingbird and a couple other wetland cranes represent the small tribe of support we can have while we are healing. sometimes we know exactly who those loved ones are that are helping us -- other times, they might be the angels that emilie-claire sings about -- we may not see them, but they are there to give comfort and love during these difficult times. the flowers i chose: spotted orchids to represent the sacrifice our savior has made for each of us and gold gerber daisies to remind us of our worth. the dark black background portrays the cozy space needed to allow the healing to take place and that while still in the darkness of healing, we can find comfort and then eventually move toward the light.
