Madonna's Demon 6 - Embracing the Demon

12 x 16 Watercolor I have been captivated by this vision lately and feel the urge to express it through painting. You may see it here in different forms. . This piece reflects the reality of finding and addressing the demons in our lives. The Madonna is an icon that represents the feminine in it's purest form. No matter how "clean" one's life appears to the outside world - people struggle with their own problems and "demons". Though we emanate goodness and kindness and try to positively affect those around us, we harbor troubles of our own. In this piece the Madonna embraces the demon. She has finally faced the fact that the demon is a part of her and there is no turning away from the problem. She is instead, truly prepared to deal and accept that part of herself that she has until now, turned away from - or hidden from view. The flames surrounding the Madonna are bright - expressing her fierce influence on the world.
