Allow (with William Morris wallpaper) – Drypoint

This piece is about allowing and how your internal state is reflected in what you see around you. Internal external, conscious unconscious. The teapot is from the imagination unbounded by physical laws it can flow eternally.
The highly patterned William Morris wallpaper is the pattern of life, the busyness of all that is going on. I often use tree’s in my work as symbols for growth here the leaves on her shirt represent Alice’s growth as a person. It is a piece about being thoughtful, and allowing yourself to be aware of the good that flows into your life.
