10 years ago I came to Maui. My first painting here was called “Open Heart”. My friend and spirit sister Lysha Kamisato Wernig, posed for me. The painting was an expression of what Maui felt like to me…heart opening. My work here has been centered around the heart ever since. As an anniversary celebration..I wanted to do another painting based on that same image with the mixed media I use now and an expression of the growth in my heart these last 10 years on this amazing lava rock I call home. The new moon symbolizes new beginnings and is a powerful time to fulfill our visions. As the year comes to a close I send this painting out as my prayer for change and peace…and the opening of many hearts. I will share this new original painting in my show on Big Island in January with Tiffany’s Art Agency. Aloha : )
