The brief: Purple background and either a ladybug, rooster or both and some heart shapes.
This piece was lovingly crafted for a long-time friend who lost her Mother. Many of the symbols she requested in the piece remind her of her Mom.
I knew her Mom when we were in high school and often felt envious of their beautiful, tight bond. They even looked exactly alike.
While creating this work, I listened to an online course called From Maiden to Mother, it’s about learning to listen to your internal Mother, especially unmothered women. I thought of my friend the entire time.
My intentions for my friend to find her inner Mother while on her own Motherhood journey with her three, beautiful children, infused this piece.
