She Who Holds Up the Sky

She Who Holds Up the Sky_low resThere is a saying that women hold up half the sky. It resonates for me because women, more often then men, are the ones who hold the threads of connection, especially in relationships.

Holding up the sky seems like a wonderful metaphor for the way we can hold a container for all the complex way people and creatures intertwine with each other, whether it be a child and a parent or a cat and their companion.

The star in the sky is what she guards and loves and protects when she holds up the sky.

Acrylic on canvas, 16×20 inches. Gallery wrapped, unframed.
