"Reemergence" by Gwen Bell
30 X 24 oil on canvas nfs
I missed the Challenge last month so I'm getting it
in early this month for the "Dreams" theme.
It is so exciting to really step out of my comfort zone
and do something completely different and conceptual.
This has a lot of personal symbolism from a time that was
particularly scary and isolating as a young child. I still
have reoccurring dreams about it. I used several references
of myself: one terrified, one trying to figure it all out and
one attempting to reemerge as the happy child.
