I am not a religious person but I am a spiritual one. I do not believe in God but I do believe in a bigger picture.
I named this painting Illuminated because she brought some insight into my soul while I painted her. She started out as nothing special and I even disliked her for a while but she blossomed into this beauty that just so happened ended up with a halo around her.
I wondered for a while why the halo but it came clear to me after a couple of days just looking at her. She is an expression of my inner growth. She doesn’t only express my feelings that were stirring inside me while I painted her but my actions and revelations surrounding me in that week of my life.
I strongly believe that we knowingly or unknowingly attract things, actions and people into our lives. We attract them because our soul is telling us we are ready for them even though our mind might not agree at that very moment.
I found a blog of an artist, a prodigy child Akiana. I mentioned her on twitter and FB fan page before. Now, I won’t get into what she's all about cause you can read about her on her blog and decide for yourself. What strikes me is her way of expression and her insight into this world. I think I invited her into my life at just the right time. :)
