I can see this young girl both gentle and strong as many of the
definitions of ~spirited~ imply. She loves to learn, all subjects
interest her and yet she has her own direction to pursue. I can tell
she spends most of her time alone, enjoying the company of
herself. She dreams of a gypsy life, wearing flowing dresses in
bright colors, silky scarves cover her head. Her bracelets make a
sweet tinkering sound as she weaves flowers into a hanging bouquet.
Aging will not intimidate her – she looks forward to graying hair,
her memories are cherished as the freedom she has come to
“I am a free spirit. A spirit that evolves. I’m a diamond.
I’m just refining it. Polishing it. Glossing it up.” ~ Simeon Rice
The antlers in the watercolor painting symbolize for me a crown a spiritual regeneration. The deer symbolizes agility, and speed yet has a gentleness connected to a female person. In dreams the deer can symbolize a loved one messaging you from the afterlife. The deer spirit animal asks one to trust their instincts and take care of the inner child.

The finished project is from the previous post. The color wheels were a separate page I did to mix colors and use for a reference in the project. The flowered card is a test page and left-over paint from a tutorial at YouTube, Creations Cee Cee.
