I had the opportunity to work with the ever so talented and sweet Larissa Mariani (known as @lariswrotethis on Instagram). We teamed up to create two pieces around a common theme: transformation.
This particular theme has been resonating with me a lot these days. It encompasses change and growth, and in my case coming to terms with the mental and emotional aspects of growing up.
When I sat down to paint around this theme the phases of the moon seemed like a good way to go. I’ve be always had a special love for the moon; I think the symbolism is extraordinary.
It symbolizes change, growth, transformation, serenity, release, renewal, and serves a small a reminder that there is peace and healing to be found in even the darkest of nights.
