Hey friends. I was sharing images of this painting on Facebook and many people asked about its story.
Here is the story behind this sacred painting.
This was a commissioned painting in honour of someone’s sister (Lisa) who passed away.
Lisa had brown hair and brown eyes, loved Peter Pan and referred to her sister, Emma, who commissioned the painting, as her ‘second star to the right’. :)
Lisa loved rhinos and feathers were meaningful too. One of the colours she loved was blue.
It was incredibly special and meaningful for me to work on this painting. So much so in fact, that it took me a long time before I could work on it, because I needed ‘sacred space’ and ‘sacred time’ to work on a painting so special, honouring a special family member who had passed. While drawing and painting Lisa, I felt directed connected to her.
I’m grateful to have been asked to make a painting in memory of Lisa. <3
I hope you enjoy the video and some close ups. :)
