(First of all! Allow me to apologize for being so very AFK from Tapastic. As you can see, I am now at the very end of my pregnancy and frankly I'm overwhelmed with all that must be done before my son's arrival! I will continue to be AFK for who-knows-how-long as I juggle life with a new baby. Thank you for your patience!)
The photo shown here is a design I came up with to celebrate the arrival of my precious baby boy, Titan!
The art is more than just a story about the creative process and how we deal with the challenge of daily life, but it is a story of what I went through this last year...
Starting with joy.
Building my dreams.
Ending everything in flames.
Drowning in emotion.
New life sprouting.
These cycles of the elements apply to us all and it is up to each of us how we handle the transformations.
How can you use these forces in your life to create instead of destroy?
Lastly, dragon near the bottom of the design represents Gabriel, the soul of my little boy and all his unfathomable love... a reminder that we are never truly apart from the ones we love.
