2016, acrylic on canvas, 28″ x 54″
This painting was inspired by our June 2016 Algonquin canoe adventure. It considers the rite of passage where our children move on into their own lives. As parents we nurtured love in their hearts and we mourn the fact that our intimate time shared together has now past. We entrust their sacred little lives to the guidance and protection of Spirit. It’s so beautiful that just as our young ones move on, so too are we set free to explore and enjoy the wonder of it all for ourselves, as free spirits who were once parents.
