A Tender Act of Rebellion
Watercolor 11x14 (framed dimensions roughly 15x18)
2018


I created this piece because I wanted to talk about how sometimes, even the smallest deviations from the status quo can feel like an act of rebellion as you attempt to live a life that is true to yourself.  I have for years placed myself in a box that never fit quite right, and have only recently begun to allow myself to be comfortable expressing what I want, and who I want to be. 

For me, in this piece, the skull represents old thinking and foundations; the tentacles are deviations from the status quo; the flowers are new growth and the innocence of new beginnings. Working on this piece helped to articulate some of the positive changes that I have embraced in the last few months.
