Seasons of the Soul

"Seasons of the Soul" by Stephanie E. Robinson





Click on the image to enlarge it.



This is a hand-signed lithograph created from an original painting in watercolor and ink. "Seasons of the Soul" originated as individual doodles in my sketchbook years ago during a period of personal crisis and self-acceptance. (From left to right, the icons are subtitled: Confusion, Resistance, Submission, Acquiescence, The Plunge, Rebirth, Fortitude, Elation, Symmetry, Harmony, and Moving Out.)It was not until a year or so later, as I flipped through the pages, I saw the progression. I drew the figures again in a line and suddenly their meaning became clear. It was a never-ending story of life and growth, healing and becoming...like the seasons, always repeating yet constantly evolving.

Years have passed, yet the significance of this spiritual creation is ever more powerful and meaningful to me as I continue to move through the seasons in many aspects of my life. I am honored and fulfilled when others can relate to and understand the symbolic language of healing the soul.
This print is available for purchase and can be shipped anywhere. For more information, please email me at sots11@hotmail.com and leave a phone number where you can be reached. Include a subject line of "Seasons of the Soul".

(measures 10 inches by 32 inches, including white border, sold print only, shipped in tube, price $35 US plus shipping. Image depicts a framed, matted copy, not the print alone. Recommended framing instructions can be provided by phone or email.)

Artist's Biography

Stephanie E. Robinson
Durham, North Carolina

I was raised in a small university town in the mountains of western North Carolina. The town, named Cullowhee, Cherokee for "Valley of the Lilies", was built on the site of an ancient Indian village. I grew up wading creeks, digging for arrowheads, swinging on vines, climbing trees and running through fields. A friend and I made pottery from the yellow gold clay deposits in the creek bank and we made flutes from the bamboo stalks. We explored the woods discovering secret places and claiming them as only children can. I wanted to be an Indian when I grew up.

Early on I developed a deep spiritual connection with nature. My heart quickens when I watch a hawk glide across the sky or see a deer stand motionless until she breaks the lock of our eyes, lifts her snowy tail and bounds off. Standing before a waterfall, I feel its roaring power as its electric energy engulfs me and vibrates my soul.

Art, to me, is emotion filled...a circle completed and made whole. Emotions may be expressed in many different ways, but when the soul truth of the emotion is expressed in an honest and loving way, it becomes art. I believe in the artist in everyone. An artist at work is a child at play...exploring, discovering, experimenting, feeling out a world without limitations, rules, or prejudices. A world where the imagination rules and being who you are is magical and wonderful.
