"Hope, self-comforting, before she opens her loving arms to embrace us all. I've illuminated her body in the colours of the Chakras to represent:

  • Green at her heart (for love), Blue at her throat (for communication),
  • Turquoise to the right of her heart for the Ananda Khanda area, a space of bliss containing Heaven and Earth.
  • As well as the heavenly blue rays her hands are emanating magenta sparks to represent Spirituality.
  • There is perhaps the merest suggestion of white wings, behind her.
  • Two tiny little dots of Red at her earrings for some added strength and energy illuminate her neck.
  • Above her, behind her, I have scribbled and scratched a triangle of bright orange-yellow as a flash of Hope and a New day.
  • Compressed charcoal gives the deep black, quality chalk pastels and streaks of vivid Caran d'Ache pencil and Inktense crayon deliver the intense colours.

The image is presented on Somerset 22 x 30 inches 3300gsm textured paper which has been primed with gesso. I'm offering this artwork unframed; I believe my collectors prefer to match a frame to their existing artworks and decor. The pastel drawing is 'fixed' with Winsor & Newton colourless pastel fixative, carefully packed flat. Sent with a Certificate of Authenticity and Tracked Delivery
