Created for our 3rd Birthday Show this work is part of a series titled "Walk with me" Six new originals sharing stories of reconnecting to our inner child, life with children and the stories we share and reflecting on the great moments and memories that we hold dear. Each piece is created within an oval shaped dome. A rainbow, a safe space, a memory.... happily in their own world.
"Forty six, forty seven" is a tongue in cheek reference to a popular children's game as well as revealing the artist's age and counting... We cannot hide from our age but we can stay young at heart for a youthful spirit helps us stay connected to our world.
