This painting speaks to the power and romance of memories. We all have a particular time in our recollected childhoods when we felt eternally safe. When we loved the world and it loved us back. For me, that memory was solidified while growing up in a small seaside community. Yet those memories, while undoubtedly filtered to exclude unpleasant experiences, I believe are there to serve us later as emotional markers. In other words, if as adults we can access the emotional vibration of when we felt most nurtured and happy, it gives us a place to tap into – an ideal blueprint – when creating our ideal lives today.
