A few months ago, before covid blew up in all of our faces. Before the riots and everything else chaotic hit, I was lucky enough to meet this awesome chick at the shop I work at. I gave her a tarot reading and we talked about life and spirituality. I meet a ton of people where I work at and give a ton of readings. I don’t always remember them…. But I remembered her.
We became friends on instagram and kind of kept in touch here and there. Out of the blue one day she hit me up for a wood burning commission. She wanted something depicting a mother and child. Something that represented love, and growth, and fertility.
I sat with it a bit and ended up sketching up this.
One of the most beautiful things in this world is the love of a mother for her child. But deeper than that, we as women are natural born creators. We create a tiny spark out of the void. We bring life into this world. And you don’t have to be a mother to understand that energy. Do you have a pet that you love? That’s that energy. Are you an artist or a creative? That uses that energy. Do you have a project you created from the ground up? That uses that energy.
From this sketch came the wood burning and then the carving.
I once again, used a special herbal blend to bring in maternal love, growth, fertility, and manifestation. I incorporated stones in the womb to embody the same energy as well. The finished piece honestly, turned out so great! And I am so glad that I was able to help this lovely lady out with a piece that is all her own!
