This summer has me thinking a great deal about my daughter and the generation of girls with whom she will face the world. I dream of who she might become and the potential that exists inside all young women. Aphrodite Rising is my attempt to capture a hint of the special time in a young woman's life, when she begins to feel...truly...like a woman. She can feel the feminine fire burn within her; and sense her power and connection to the living world. It's magical for me to remember, though I understood so little of what it was I was experiencing, or how profound it really was. I hope I can communicate it better to Alisa, when the time comes, that she might revel in it even more than I did. 

The original piece was done using an acrylic ink paint on watercolor paper. The technique is very similar to watercolor but tends to keep more vibrant hews and dries permanently to the paper; enabling me to create layered pieces that would be impossible with watercolor.
