The Wormhole

After the very intricate World Wide Web piece, I felt ready to loosen up and let my arm flow. And I became inspired by the neon desert installation of Ugo Rondinone:

Before loosening up though, I had to tackle her face, which I’m enjoying making more realistic as this series progressing:

Finally… time to PLAY!!!

The working title for this piece was Transcend Dance, in honor of that feeling of dancing in a crowd, losing yourself, and feeling part of the cosmic rhythm. However, in the middle of working on it, I re-watched Interstellar for the third time (LOVE IT!) and experienced an Ah-ha! moment.

I saw her being born, into a world of glorious color and playfulness. I think we’re all constantly shedding old skin and rebirthing ourselves into new understandings. This marks such a moment.

The simple truth of this painting is: sometimes you’ve just gotta do what makes you happy. And giving yourself this gift marks a rebirth into living your birthright.

Are there any parts of YOU that need rebirthing? Your inner child? Gratitude? Self-care? Nurture yourself and the process.

Here’s a quick and hypnotic time-lapse of the process, enjoy!

Love, Meghan Oona ♥
