Description about the painting:

Cocoon Child
Day 10 of 28 Days
Motif, BUTTERFLY, affirmative
size 11 inch by 14 inch
oil on canvas
This painting is inspired by Clayon Valli's poem "Cocoon Child." This is really somewhat a liberation art because it started with a Deaf child inside a cocoon, protecting herself. She comes in and out of the cocoon, with threads all over, and finally out of the cocoon, she becomes a butterfly, a true self and the wings are free. I made this painting to be a metamorphosis, to start with a cocoon being unidentified, and coming out of the cocoon, white scribbled threads are everywhere and that is the "Deafhood" stage and into a journey, a butterfly flies away. So, this painting is an affirmative art.
