Who is she?

Who is she?  I don't know.  She won't tell me.  When I first put her on the canvas, she was definitely a child.  Since then she has morphed into something in between woman and little girl.  ??  Who knows.  She's not talking.

She did tell me this.  I come with light for the journey so you won't loose your way.  I come with strength.  It will be there for you even during your weakest moments.  Music is written on my heart.  It will always lift you up.  You can have the moon and stars if you only ask.  I hold the keys to the Kingdom. 

She tells me to put a candle in her hand with a large flame which reflects onto her face.  Her heart is too big, so she carries it wherever she goes.  An oak tree stands beside her bearing acorns, a symbol of strength.  I have a feeling there are flowers on some of the branches so I will always be surrounded by beauty.  Music, literally will be written upon her heart.  Always visible, always there whenever I need it.  A Key hangs from one of the lower branches.  Perhaps there is a bird sitting at her feet, offering her insight and messages when she cannot see for herself.  Perhaps symbols of the moon and stars are on her cloak.  I don't know yet.  She has just appeared on the canvas.  I will keep you posted.

Thank you once again for coming for a visit.  I do love company dropping by.  For those of you who leave your lovely comments, I have to tell you they mean the world to me.  They are my support.  They keep me going.  xxoo
