Forever In The Wind

“Forever In The Wind” is an original watercolour batik that reflects my love of repeating patterns and my need to create order from chaos, to make art that provides a peaceful and meditative experience, where I lose myself in the creative process. This is one piece of a collective body of work called “In The Wind”, a series of visual artworks, along with an accompanying poem, that are based on a recurring dream I have where I rise from the ground and fly over land. The dragonflies depicted in this piece are an integral part of the Manitoba landscape and symbolize change through self-discovery and the opening of oneself to living uninhibited and in the moment, embracing authentic self. This overall design is also a repeating pattern when digitized. I created “Forever In The Wind” by hand drawing on rice paper with ink and then using watercolour with a wax resist. My creative works emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.
