As you might remember from my post in June wednesday-affirmation-make-of-each-day-a-light-filled-vessel, we lost our sweet Mama V. All this time I have been trying to paint her, to capture some of the innocence and sweetness that was her soul even though she endured the horror’s of the puppy mill for a long time before she escaped and eventually, in her later years, spent time roaming the fields and woods on walks with us.
I miss her every day and feel as if her spirit is close and ever present. So today, I worked on the painting I started in July and finally feel like she is that light filled vessel I imagine her to be. She has beautiful blues and greens, soft yellows and vibrant oranges and pinks. Painted toenails, a gold crown with jewels and and bursting heart wrapped in gold. It is my wabi sabi version of the complex being that she was, who graced our lives for just a little while before continuing on her journey elsewhere.
How can a dog with pink and orange wings and gold toenails be anything but beautiful.
