Rising I - a large original painting

'Rising' was created from a place of empowerment after starting to silently say to myself in my meditation 'I am rising'.

It means that I am learning more about myself each day and that my consciousness is growing a little each day as well. It's a metaphor for starting to realise I am becoming a higher version of myself. 

This then sparked the idea for a series of paintings interpreting a sunrise in the mountains.

Along with 'I am strong, I am wise and I am at peace' these affirmations became part of my daily practice and through the creation of these paintings became the vehicle for me to visually convey and express my silent messages.

Feeling that inspiration within me I was able to create from a place of peace and trust that growth even though often uncomfortable will always guide you to become a higher version of yourself.

I am rising.
