In this painting I painted a version of myself that is one with the universe and my light is radiantly shining forth offering to the world the gifts that are uniquely mine to give.
Her dress is green because green is a color that symbolizes healing. Her hair is flowing with stars to symbolize her connection with the universe. The sun in her hands symbolize the light of what I have to offer the world. And I always include the color of purple in my paintings because I think of purple as the color of spirituality.
