This is the 2nd version of a very important painting for me. It was while doing the first version of this painting that I realized my creative process was teaching me how to love myself.
In each heart bubble there is a message of support to myself. and the hands over her heart symbolize that she is connecting with herself with love.The color green of her dress is a healing color. And her skin tone is purple to indicate her spirit and not her geographical place of origin.I like using purple as a universal skin tone color. Other times I use a a light shade of brown because we are all shades of brown.
