The Boatman (January 2020) WIP. I had mixed too much maroon for a different painting, so I used the excess to paint the entire canvas because I didn’t want to waste it. When I visited my boyfriend he showed me a song he had written about Charon, which was based on a short story about Charon that he had written in high school. I was still trying to decide what I’d use the canvas for so I decided to paint a scene along the river Styx.

MORPHO

The artwork revolves around the concept of change, healing, and standing up again after your feelings and circumstances in life tears at you in repetitive cycles. It’s about standing strong, planting your feet on the ground and breaking out of your protective shell to try and challenge life once more, so you wipe away your tears and unravel your bandages to reveal your scars, no longer afraid to show the world how vulnerable and hurt you have been.


The brilliant blues of the butterflies surrounding the subject is the morpho itself, an iridescent butterfly native to the Central and South American forests. They are illustrated to show change, metamorphosis, the renewal of being. The bandages and the scars, the tears along her eyes dancing against the wind are signs of hurt and pain, and her wiping them away is a testament to courage. The bright monarch butterfly on her left temple is a symbolism for hope and transformation.


The piece is meant to give hope to those who suffer from wounds of the past and the old. To remind people that change is not always horrific and something to avoid, and no matter how much you fall to your knees before the hardships of living, standing up again would be anything but fruitless—no matter what happens, it will all be worth it in the end, so one must
keep their eyes forward, and stand up again.
