Afterwards, I complete the piece by cutting and reworking the painting. The underpainting is slightly visible beneath and in the cut pieces glued on top.
LAY YOUR BURDENS DOWN
This piece is a community project.
I invite you to write, draw, scribble, scratch...
to express yourself, to lay your burdens down,
Like lighting a candle, or hanging a milagro,
spinning a prayer wheel, or making a wish,
Just open your heart and let it out.
That which weighs you down every day does
not need to be a burden forever.
Let it go.
Feel your heart be light.
I will complete the piece, with all your offerings
remade into a work of beauty and brightness.
Thank You for your heartfelt contributions
to this community healing.
