Renewal & Nature

Updated: Jul 30, 2023


In the realm of art, personal renewal is the key that unlocks our creative potential, allowing us to breathe new life into our artistic voice. There are times when we find ourselves yearning for inspiration and new invigoration amidst the ebb and flow of life. In these moments, nature becomes our sanctuary, providing solace, healing and a wellspring of rejuvenation.


In this blog I share little tidbits of my personal and ongoing journey of renewal, navigating grief, embracing changes and connecting with the transformative force of nature.


Finding Comfort in Nature:


When faced with heartache, grief can become an overwhelming force, leaving us feeling disconnected and devoid of inspiration. It is during these challenging times that getting into nature can provide a refuge for the weariest of souls. As I navigated my own journey of mourning, I discovered the profound connection between nature and personal renewal. By immersing myself in the serene beauty of the outdoors, I found solace in the gentle rustle of leaves, the vibrant hues of wildflowers and the soothing melodies of birdsong.


As a studio artist I keep watercolor pencils in my toolbox for when I want to draw or paint while in Nature. These pencils by Windsor & Newton are what I used to draw this mini watercolor below.


Along with incorporating healing plants into my home and studio one of the places I go to connect and find inspiration is outdoors. On this particular day I chose to visit a Conservatory, although not necessarily "outside" this particular building is a vast landscape of blooming plants and fruits.


In my hometown, Detroit, there is one of the counties oldest Conservatories where I had the vision for my fox painting, emerging from the leaves.





Nature's Inspiring Palette for Artistic Transformation


The Spiritual Symbolism of the Fox:

"Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." - Matthew 8:20

In various cultures, the fox embodies a rich spiritual symbolism, known for its adaptability and cunning nature. The fox represents our ability to navigate life's challenges with grace and resilience.

As artists, we can tap into the spiritual essence of the fox, infusing our art with profound meaning, energy and playfulness!


By exploring the symbolism behind this magnificent creature, we unlock a well of inspiration that fuels our creativity and guides us on our path of personal renewal.

By immersing ourselves in the wonders of the natural world, we open ourselves up to new perspectives and hidden artistic treasures.
