52 Weeks #26
Two big things today...it's Canada Day and I have made it to the half way point on the 52 WEEKS PROJECT!!! I can't believe it. And in honour of this milestone I decided to paint the porcupine that lived in our lilac bushes for a few days. Our family was enthralled watching him sleep and stretch and yawn. In the sixteen years I've lived in this town I didn't know we had porcupines here.
Porcupine represents innocence & wonder and is a symbol of faith & trust. A reminder to remain grounded and child-like, to remember fantasy & imagination. A symbol to let go of criticism.
In that vein, I spoke with artist and life coach Liz Wiltzen this past weekend. Our conversation was an eye-opener for me, a catalyst really. She reminded me to let go of the criticism of the past and hellped confirmed what it is I need to do to fully follow my passions. A life-affirming moment. Her motto is 'What if you loved your life?' Speaking with her was such a huge gift and I'm looking forward to staying connected. If you need some clarity or direction in your life, I highly recommend contacting Liz.

LOVE the porcupine!! And, so intrigued to see how you've worked pattern into your portrait of the little guy. I've always been entranced by pattern, but haven't quite figured out the right way to work it into my art. Thanks for giving me the inspiration to find a way! Great work, looking forward to more posts!

Thanks Cheryl! The interesting thing about this piece is that I added the pattern first, not certain of the final product...which I think says a ton for the power of play :)
