"Empowered" is an original watercolor painting on cold press acid-free watercolor paper. It is part of my Motherhood Collection, a series of paintings created soon after my first baby's birth.
"Empowered" is about the powerful feelings a woman can experience after giving birth. I chose red and yellow to show that passion and power, as well as a nod to the pain and bleeding. I chose the flowers and plants around the arm for their special meanings (listed from bottom to top);
Mistletoe: "I surmount all difficulties"
Bay laurel tree: "Glory"
Every mother can embrace her birth story, whether natural, c-section, induced, or traumatic. Your story is YOURS
