Arms lift upward, reaching for divine embrace. Night breathes gentle round her, star light glowly fills her blinded face. Quiet night of a brightly colored child, she holds herself close to the sky, full of longing.
"Starlight" is a 12”x16” original acrylic painting done on a traditional depth canvas, painted with the loveliest nighttime rainbow colorway. Lots of dripping paint all around the edges of the canvas that bring the art to life as it melts forth and beyond all it should be to become more. This night is a bit too much for its reality! I love the variations of color and texture in her skin, especially her light blind face, still wet with tears and dreams. I feel the golden locks of hair as they follow the wind up, and the watery stretches of blue that reach down round her, like God’s embrace. Signed and dated on the back, from early 2015.
