Freeing the Spirit

Finally, i have resolved the work that has taken up so much of my summer and fall. As you can see from previous posts it has come a long way. My mistake early on was not beginning with a strong design in mind so it has taken quite a few reworkings to resolve the design problems. Since this is a study for a much larger work I will redesign it with the things i learned from this rework and apply them to the next one. I really like the idea of the figure starting out confined to a globe (vessel) and gradually finding her way to freeing herself. Much like many women all over the world today, it takes a long time and a lot of work to truly become free in mind, spirit and body.

A reiki vision

The first time i experienced reiki i had a recurring vision of a young woman beckoning me through an archway. It has stayed with me for two years. I finally was able to express it visually. This is the first study. Eventually the archways will be expanded and then transferred to large canvas.
