Art and Positive Thinking

Welcome to my Renee Loves Art blog!

My focus is exploring, creating and reflecting upon the positives of life and connecting them to my art whether it be photography, pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, mixed media, digital media or any other possible media I dive into!

I hope you join me on my art adventure!

Positively Connected, A Mother's Day Tribute

Forever Connected

"A mother's love infinitely surrounds her child and safely comforts and softens all of life's obstacles.  She is the sun and the moon.  Forever connected. Forever needed. "  Renee Dowling

I created this Mother's Day art using pastel pencils to symbolize the connection between a mother and child. I also used a gold pen and green pen to add swirls to the mat.  Daphne Odjig is one of my favourite artists, so I had one of her pieces in mind when I created this.  The rushing water and the rocks symbolize the obstacles in life that can be overcome with the support of a caring, understanding mother.  There are two suns to represent the never ending love of  a mother, sunrise to sunset.  A mother is the sun and the moon to a child.  They remain forever connected to each other, even after death.  We forever need our mothers, even if only in memory.
