'A wash of satin petals wake her into her dream, wearing her hope upon
their fragile lifted sails as they guide her deeper into her waiting
heart. What does she wonder at as she slumbers beneath the cascading
blooms? Does she know how sublimely she does bloom? Or how bold her
light lifts up the cloak of night to peer into the sanguine dawn beyond?
May she then know that the blooms are merely harbingers of what she may
be, that she may dare to wake to them; To see her resplendent dreams
woven upon her in satin petals of a secret heart.'
This is a more loose piece than most for me. In truth, this is actually a
quite old sketch. I was sifting through unfinished loose sketches,
trying to clear out some clutter, and came across one I instantly
recalled with a vivid flash. The original sketch was actually quite
inspired by Alector Fencor.
Her work is a constant source of inspiration to me and a reminder to
stay on course and stay true to my heart in my art. This is something
she never seems to falter with, her vision is consistently bold and
blazing with soul and life. Thank you! This is the way I see your heart,
someone ever blooming and if I may hope for one thing is that you wake
to see your own blooms.
I do not think it would be entirely fair to call this gift art as it
came to be driven by selfish motivation as well, but as I painted it, it
came to mean something more intimate to me and if I may, I would like
to dedicate it to you Alector and to my beloved Lorien
whom, with each new day, in turn, teaches me to bloom and nurtures that
bloom so it may never wither. Thank you both for your guiding
inspiration in the driving parts of my life.
