Wisdom Passed
mixed media
Wisdom passed is painted on a cradled wood panel. There are many events in a female’s life that correspond to the concept “coming of age.” A female’s first menstrual cycle, her wedding day, loss of virginity, and the birth of children are all milestones on the journey to womanhood. True “coming of age” is achieved through a combination of notable experiences that bestow wisdom over the span of a lifetime. Wisdom Passed is a tribute to my grandmother, the most loving, intelligent, and wisest person that I have ever known.
