* Acabado (Finished)

Her heart still bleeding from many wounds of old and at times feeling half empty, The Dancer continues her healing journey with Spirit Guides holding, embracing, and supporting her.  The hat acts as a shield and is representative of all she has learned along the way which indeed protects her as she moves forward on her spiritual quest.   Living in the moment, however still dancing in the blood of the past, The Dancer is determined to make her way home.

For those of you popping over from The Butterfly Effect ... I think she is actually quite surreal, although she too is an intuitive painting.  What do you think?  

"Surely a woman needs a closed place wherein she may strike root and, like the seed, become.  But also she needs the great Milky Way above her and the vast sea spaces, though neither stars nor ocean serve her daily needs."  ~Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, The Wisdom of the Sands, translated from French by Stuart Gilbert
