We root in even when it's hard.
We root in even when it's uncomfortable.
We root in because it's the only way we can bloom.
40x40 acrylic on canvas inspired by the idea of rooting in to who we are. Inspired by the words of this poet:
When you are becoming the sun
some will experience you as a burning
others as a necessary light for growth
others will deny your shine
while warming their hands with your radiance
some will laugh and remind you that stars explode
while knowing nothing of the death you already own
a kind of mortality
only girls like you know
how to die everyday
and still rise
in the morning
