About "You Have My Heart"

The Blue Jay Bird
Among the Sioux, Blue Jay represents "double vision," meaning greater clarity. They interpreted the Jay's nesting space among the fir and oaks as symbolizing strength, long life, and endurance. It's a confident and determined bird, both competitive, bold, and earnest, filled with honest curiosity and passion. Blue jays are considered courageous and loyal animals. They are also deeply energetic and determined.

In our lives, we often get hurt by others, physically, mentally, and spiritually. My anger creates stones in my heart. The other person does not care about my hurt. My hurt just hurt me more...and I become someone that hurts others. Maybe I don't allow them into my life. Maybe I build thick walls and a sharp tongue. Ultimately my unforgiveness changes into anger and bitterness and I start becoming sick in mind and body. My perpetrator walks away free and I am bound by the rocks of my heart,

Forgiveness is not pardoning, condoning, excusing an offense, or forgetting about it. It is also not the same as reconciliation although that can occur as part of the forgiveness process.
Forgiveness is my choice that sets me free from my chains.
The chains that anchor me to my rocks of memory. I choose to let go. Forgiveness is the stuff of everyday heroes, the ultimate measure of internal peace.
To err is human, to forgive divine. - Alexander Pope
If hope gives you wings, forgiveness will get me off the ground
So courageously, I choose to let go, to let my anger fly free, I choose to forgive and the blue light of the clear skies shines into my heart again.

How I Create

The brightness of oils is mixed with the soft translucency of encaustics (wax), and creates hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewer becomes a part of the slow change and clarity of the if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind. There is a strange ethereal beauty to these paintings, as if made from air.
