“her white tree”
this print was created from a really important moment in my life.
i was stuck on the idea that i had to build myself again after feeling pretty demolished. and i just didn't know how to do that. how do you just rebuild yourself? the whole visual left me discouraged.....
and then in a conversation with my sons about this, it dawned on me - i didn't have to rebuild a darn thing! my core was STILL THERE. it was like a glorious tree that had been hacked down and burned....but the roots were still there, and there under the ashes was still some green. what i had to do was figure out ways to nurture that part of me back to life. i had to scoot the ashes out of the way and let the sun and warm rain in. and THAT was a visual i could work with!
it moved me to tears and i wanted to make a print out of it. and that is how this print was born! View “her white tree” 8x10
a wonderful thing
the challenge of living
