Spirit Guide

Spirit Guide - Acrylic on 12" x 12" canvas

This piece took some time to really emerge and come together. At one point it was faceless and on the right side was a sky with birds and an abstract interpretation of the ocean. There was just too much going on and I liked the effect of the starry cosmos as a backdrop. Kendra Zvonik helped me realize some final details (thanks Kendra!). I hesitated to title this piece because I want the viewer to have their own experience with it. I see a female spirit guide encouraging me to move forward with courage and strength, but you may see a goddess, an angel, your own inner spirit or a mystic traveler.

you're welcome, Jessica!
I love this painting and the process by which she emerged for me personally was inspirational.

I like how those colors come together inside the female figure. They really put the emphasis on her action and role as a guiding force. Plus the texture created by the spattering technique you used in the background gave her an ethereal feel. It is really an inspiring and beautiful masterpiece.
