Initiation of the Child--Gaining Power,
Wintertime--Coaxing the Child out of the Tree, and
Girl’s Night Journey--Moonboat:

These three paintings are a series in which I went deeply into my experience of powerlessness and pain as a child.

In this panel and in Wintertime, I imagined and encountered inner figures who were able to help with healing and giving me strength. I had not preconceived these figures, but found them in the paint, seeing them emerge from the decalcomania textures.
