The keys placed throughout this whimsical painting allow access to color, beauty and the splendor of life. We are all products of our experiences both positive and negative. The keys symbolically represent our innate ability to release ourselves to experience the richness of our existence.


This painting provides daily affirmations for the truth that each day is what we choose to make of it.
