Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
The third piece in my 1989 series is number six on the album: Shake It Off. This painting is about more than a catchy tune to rise above rumors, drama or perceived insults. It's about harnessing an inner light that not only allows you to rise above, but creates more light in the process. When I worry that people are saying unkind things about me, or that my true intentions and good nature have been misunderstood, I try to make sure I'm not bristling against the insults and letting them make me feel smaller, but instead flapping my wings and letting glittery shiny pieces of stardust frost the sky from my soaring. I try to shake it off in a way that empowers others to do the same, by shining bright.
