The swan chair on the carousel.

I started painting with an idea and it morphed  and morphed. I kept doodling and this is what came into being.

'JOURNEY HOME' 1000watercolor aceo 1/2013

This painting is multifaceted for me. I started to paint with no intention and the images that came into being formed a trail…a story. The swan seems to be a benevolent guide for the woman. Taking her home. The tail feathers in the back seemed to say ice bergs. Ocean and land. Riding on the back of the swan with an arm around the bird spirit’s neck.

Hamsa means white swan. It is the name of a very ancient and powerful mantra. Ham on the in-breath and So on the out-breath. The mantra leads us beyond our limited concepts and helps us let go of negative feelings. Like  swan we find our own spiritual grace and purity within.
