Cycle of Life Depiction in Holly:

Love being such a tremendous power, its shadow side also comes to expression in enormously powerful feelings: jealousy, revenge, hatred, envy, resentment, malice. Every being wants to give love and receive love when born into this world. Holly embodies the more universal aspect of love. We develop a feeling for our origins, for where we belong, and that we are all children of love. Working with the holly essence was a powerful experience. Great feelings of passion and compassion swelled up in me and questions about my own approach to the inevitability of life and death needed to be addressed while doing this painting. Ultimately, I was able to accept that we are all fading blossoms that only have a short time on this earth to find our state of grace.
