Nothing could bring back the colours stolen from her heart
'Nothing could bring back the colours stolen from her heart."
Original artwork By Elicia Ward
This painting is the expression of the moment I realised that no one can take my colours away. Most of my life I have kept parts of myself hidden, repressed and dimmed down in fear of other people’s judgements, criticisms and even standing out. I decided that from this moment forward no one will take my light away, I will stand in my truth and honour the brightness that I am.
The girl you see in the picture is my inner child. She shows up in many of my drawings and visions. She is the one that feels everything and expresses everything. She wears hiking boots and a high collar jacket that converts into a hood to protect her from any storm. The Umbrella she holds can be used to shield or as something to help guide her. This girl has been in my visions for many years now it’s only in the last decade I have really understood her significance. The further on my journey I travel, the more I see how beautiful, curious and courageous she really is.
