Transcriptions #22: Ho'oponopono
|Ho'oponopono 12" x 12"|
My connection to the Ho'oponopono prayer has continued since completing Transcriptions #16. I have found comfort in the silent chant of "I love you, I'm sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you." So in this painting, I return to the words that have become a part of my everyday life.
This painting began to take shape by cutting strips of canvas cloth and fraying the edges. When I placed them side by side on the back canvas, I found that the strips were longer than planned. Hmmm... what to do? I played with several ideas on how to resolve the issue of the excess length before choosing a path that worked quite well with this series. A fold would be formed within each of the strips and mini scrolls inserted.
The back canvas has been textured with string, sand, and paper beneath the layers of paint.
