May We All Be Well

When you find a humble feather, you stand before a grand question - as the exact origin of the feather still eludes us. Imagine an earthbound creature being able to lift off and fly! Feathers are both mystery and a miracle. At a time in my life when I was saturated with loss, I looked up to the Sky/Universe/Spirit and implored, "Please help me." What came were feathers, in decidedly odd, unique, and auspicious moments. I felt buoyed, blessed, and carried by them. Gratitude,joy, and moments of respite followed each discovery. Feather's were given and sent to me by loved ones. They became the wind beneath my wings. I began painting this series intending to infuse them with excitement, joy, and celebration. What started with the primary colors, grew into including the secondary colors encompassing the whole rainbow symbolizing all people. I now release these feather's in the spirit that they came to me, - in Hope, Delight, as a Blessing, and in Love. MAY WE ALL BE WELL
