My wish upon our world

Respect all life

Today I got a question about the symbolism on this portrait and I thought I would share my thoughts with all of you as well. I am a lover of symbolism and I use it in my art quite often. To me these aren’t just pretty symbols to embellish my portraits but a way to express my story, my vision.

I use an ankh whenever I want to express my wish for all of us to respect and protect all life. Not only that of our fellow man, but the sentient animals sharing our space and the soil life that makes it possible for our crops to grow, our ocean which is filled with life and sadly, with a lot of our waste and toxins as well.

It’s time for us to cherish and really appreciate everything that’s around us, we live on such a special planet and I don’t think we realise that often enough. It’s time for us to protect her, by making choices when we shop and by using our voice, our vote, our compassion.

Creating art is a way for me to process my thoughts and to share pieces of my inner world. I don’t want to climb on my soap box like this every single day but my portraits are a light version to share my concerns and my wishes with you all. Thank you so much for appreciating them, that means the world to me.

    We should all appreciate all the life here on this planet has to offer, but so often the ego takes control and a sense of entitlement begins to emerge. We’re all connected energetically and yet so many feel alone and isolated. I love how you add symbolism to your art, Jerney, and that you share it with us. I love this face and your added treats that you send out with your blogs, keep up the great work!! Mwah!!
