Singing You Awake

Dorothy Bury Shaw's avatar Dorothy Bury Shaw Vote Code: 67048

This rendering captures the instant of an inner awakening, the power of a single moment. A lone woman rises to salute and honor the light she has become. Lush with flowing pattern and layers of painstaking detail, I created this piece starting with an underpainting of watercolor. Colored pencil and ink are used to create vibrant colors of golds, greens, and turquoise. The delicate linework invites the view to come closer and become further mesmerized.
