Sometimes you have to make the decision to bring joy into your life. We choose the life we build around us, consciously or otherwise. We gather those we love if we decide to. We chose to bring new souls into our world this year, and it has been rewarding in every way. When it feels like nothing good is coming your way, seize it. Seize the good. Draw it in.
Original Aurora painting by Isla Jiang 'Snowdrop Path’ 2022
16x20" canvas - unframed
This collection is about optimism and hope. It’s about trusting yourself and allowing good to enter your life. I wanted to use soft periwinkle, lavender, indigo, and azure to create an ethereal collection of aurora borealis-inspired paintings. The soft flowing colors represent freedom and joy. Each painting has a layer of silver in intricate symmetrical patterns that reflect the elegance and beauty of a cathedral. I wanted to evoke the beauty of nature and the churches without walls that surround us on this earth. I wanted a contrast between allowing things to flow naturally and something structured and precise. The silver is protective and optimistic. When viewed from the right angle, like any events in our lives, it lights up true and bright. When we search for the good, truly seek it out, we will always find it.
