Ekhi – Guardian of the Light
Posted on July 1st, 2016
Sydney is a wicked competent attorney, a deeply spiritual person who serves her church locally and at the state level, and she volunteers her time to several charities. And she travels AND cares for her (grown and also wicked competent) daughters and grandbaby AND….you get the picture.
When she heard about the superhero series (choose a color, choose a super-power, come dressed in costume, I’ll create a world around you) she said, “I want to be a bringer of the light.”
She came to my studio, stood in place, raised her hand skyward. I took three shots. I said, “We’re done.”
She replied, “Really?”
I said, “Yep. We’ve got it. That was perfect. But I can take more if it will make you feel better.” She laughed.
For this image, I knew she would be floating in the clouds, hand raised toward the Light (both literal and figurative.) Her chosen color was yellow, so I began with golden yellow background, created clouds and placed her within the clouds. Then I added rays of light from above. Understated and so inspiring. Just like Sydney.
