transformation...finished!  i love when i finish a piece. 
such a feeling of completion! 

Life is a transformation from the moment we are born to the moment we die.  It is a series of changes, of growth, of wisdom.  The swan symbolizes change, beauty and grace and is an emblem of the beauty and purity of light, both solar and lunar.  In this piece, the trees represent the family, both maternal and paternal.  The branches envelop the swan as she forges her path.  They are there to provide her strength and balance, day and night....always.

the lyrics are by paul simon...from father and daughter...per request of client.

created on wood with acrylics, colored pencils, paper punches, watercolor pencils, glitter paint, liquid pencil, embossing powder, stamps, distress inks, tissue paper, stencils, pearls, fresco flakes, india ink and gold leaf.
