My River Runs Through…

Bass Wood, Furniture Tacks, Acrylic, Oil, Stain, Charring

This is a depiction of my connection to rivers. I feel as though water helps me find peace when things seem out of control. Funny thing about water is that is is free to move about as it wants, nothing holds it back. The physical and my emotional personification of water do not function in the same way. I can not control what water does and yet it helps me feel more at balance with my own circumstance.
The top face represents a spirited being. The face in the heart space had openings reaching out, representing the clarity and openness of water. The seven furniture tacks are the 7 chakra spaces represented as a circle around the heart. A blue block of blue reaches down to the base of the being showing the connection to the Earth.
