This piece explores the new world brought about by fatherhood. It looks at the responsibilities of caring for and protecting a new life from the dangers around it; as well as the excitement of a new beginning of the parents’ lives. This piece is from a collection which celebrates the inspired beginning of family.

(Philosophy and Eccentricities)
Medium: Paint marker on mat board

Images of the three crowns and three ships represent colonial countries arriving to new lands. To natives they brought promises of new beginnings. The image of the wolf represents the promise of protection. While making these promises, colonists tried to drive away the animalistic nature they saw in these native people. This history pushes us today to consider the inspirations of those beginnings and to assess how that affects our consciousness as we move forward.
