Small acrylic painting by Lisa Maria Maya. Stylized woman with bright colors and pink background.

pencil & watercolor

While at a women’s conference in Queens, New York I was doodling while I listened and I fell in love with the girl who appeared on paper.  I decided to create her again with watercolor.

To flourish is to thrive, to develop, sitting amongst women, speaking of life, of health, of love for others and of oneself, words that can not express all the emotions, knowledge and wisdom: two different things, as the words drifted around me listening while drawing and there she appeared a symbol of beauty, of vitality, of serenity.
