The Wings series is inspired by Jacqueline, oraclegirl.org
“when i was a child i wore capes and things,
never imagining one day i’d have wings
i’d run and i’d dash and i’d dive here and there.
feeling the wind in my cape and my hair
what did it mean then, pretending to fly?
Did i remember i came from the sky?
i stand on the edge now, i do not look down
if i were to look i’d see far distant ground
if i were to look i would feel too much fear
to take this first step and to fly far from here
chin up, eyes ahead, i spread my arms wide
i step off the edge and the wind lifts me high.”
About the Sovereign Collection
“The inspiration for the Collection started with an exciting shift inside me that happened when I was looking through some bills. I suddenly realized that I had the power to create the means to pay these bills and I headed to the studio, telling my husband I was off to paint money! On a deep level, the Larissa Davis Sovereign Collection represents the value I place in myself, in what I create, and a shift in my idea of what “currency” is… and, in fact, that we can name and create our own currency. How much more precious and dear is the art I make, each piece created with a vibration supporting our collective awakening, than the greenback in my wallet?
“The Sovereign Collection is the container for my works for the next several years. Those who know me will not be surprised by the name of this collection as sovereignty is a fire inside me. But ironically, it took me some time to come up with the name. I wanted to marry the inspiration of “painting money” with a name that deeply represents the truth of me. Sovereign, once I caught the name, made perfect sense. A Larissa Davis Sovereign is the currency of me.
“The Hundred Horses were the premiere series of the Larissa Davis Sovereign Collection. Other Sovereign series include Sovereign Notes, From the Archives, and Wings.”
