Cocoon of Silence

Acrylic, Oil Pastel 

After I painted these soft colors, I started thinking about synonyms for the word soft: gentle, tender, subdued... These words led my mind to feminine adjectives, and as my mind was on this track, I looked down and saw my favorite book: Janet Benton’s Lilli DeJong. Janet can paint an image so vividly and explain some of the deepest human emotions with words. And above all, the novel is about a woman... and of a mother's love.

"We strolled slowly in our cocoon of silence."

I can see a cocoon of silence in the color and composition of this painting.
