The angel reminds me of one of Antony Gormley's sculptures. Very powerful!
Karin, something makes me feel uneasy, I think it's the red wings, it is makes me "hurt". I don't know why.
Thanks Robyn - you know I LOVE Antony's work, so if there's a hint of that kind of energy, I'm flattered!Hi Ces, Thank you for sharing your feelings with me - I'm good with this image causing discomfort. I was experiencing pain myself, it's what inspired the image, so I feel that I succeeded, in part anyway, when you felt the 'hurt' -all part of that experience of breaking open.it's the *broken hearts* that *open hearts*...
pain, hurt, and yet a surrender too, that is what breaks it open, isn't it ?So beautiful, this surrender to the red winged angel...
"...all part of that experience of breaking open.it's the *broken hearts* that *open hearts*..."oh god, this brought instant tears... the piercing truth of it.my first impression was that the wings *were* the heart... actually, as i sit here i *feel* that our heart is our wing/s... i love the colors you chose, karin.xo
Thanks Kim, yes, there is much potential in that place of surrender!You nailed it Lynne - the wings were heart were wings as I painted the image in my brain that followed me around all day. I used the red in hopes of conveying the heart part - thank you for *seeing*. xox K
Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts!
Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who come alive.
Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
