Roots+Wings is my first solo exhibit, held at the Margaret Hennigar Public Library during the month of February 2018. Each image was paired with verse to represent emotions ranging from devastation through rejuvenation.

Strength, from the Roots and Wings Series by Sara Harley
My roots will ground me
as I reach for my dreams.
With each new season,
I will blossom and grow.
When ill winds blow,
I will bend but not break.
I will nurture and protect
those who take shelter with me.

I wrote this verse during the months between surgery for breast cancer and commencing radiation treatments.

I needed something to give myself motivation to carry on.

It remains one of my favourite inspirational writings to this day. 

Does these trees look familiar? (yes, there are 2 trees in this image). I used also used this image as the basis for "Strength" in my Stroke of Emotions project.

About Roots + Wings:

I believe trees represent growth and strength, with roots to ground us in our traditions. I see birds in flight as symbols of freedom, with the power of dreams and life renewed. Together, Roots + Wings create powerful images of inspiration and tools to heal the soul. These images are a symbolic representation of emotional healing, from devastation through rejuvenation.
