"Hold with open hands" 6x12 Mixed Media on Craddle Panel.
I imagine that I'm holding butterflies. If you open your hand and let them be there, you can admire them closer, enjoy them and, when they're ready, watch them fly... and if you leave your hand open, you also let open the possibility for they to return, so there is hope.
I'm not a master of this, I'm just learning. But by reminding me myself to do it there will be a day when I will be able to do so.
