“In Lak’ech Ala K’in”. It’s a Mayan greeting and means “I am you. You are me.”
It is a statement of oneness with all living things including of course Mother Earth. I love it, with a very few words it says so much.
Sometimes it’s so easy to feel the oneness, especially with people who are dear to you. Or in nature, when I’m not stuck in my head, I can feel the energy from the trees, the birds, the sun… And of course when I’m drawing!
But sometimes it’s a bit harder, for instance with people or things you don’t really like very much It’s a great lesson to learn to see the oneness with those too … I’m still learning!
So in november last year, with this beautiful greeting in mind, I’ve made these two girls. I’ve painted them with watercolors on watercolor paper, size 10×15 cm. The drawing I did with graphite pencil and white gel pen and the words I’ve printed on my old printer which is not very good anymore, it prints every letter twice.
Remains for me to say to you……
