“Open Opportunities” is Art You Love by Elizabeth Traub. ( That’s me.) I was home one day contemplating being engaged, being married and recognizing how a ring represents that circle of something lasting and eternal. The reality is we look around at every other marriage having failed. As I was thinking about this I started working on this piece.
I was using pen and ink to create the perfect circles with a template. That continuation of something that is or something to come. I decided to leave each circle open. Each thing in our lives that seems permanent has room for more. “Open Opportunities”. We tend to live by rules put on by influences in our lives that take us into something more permanent than being open for more or less.
As a parent it’s easy to look at the gifts and talents our kids have and spend their lives directing them in ways that will build on what we, the parents, think would be the best path. It’s good to be their cheer leaders. What if the circle was closed, permanent, this is it? A continuation from one year to the next doing what was expected of us. I love that my kids chose their passions and stepped into them on their own. Somethings have changed as they are open to opportunities.
I love the symbolism of marriage with a circle. A ring, a band. That is one complete circle I am a cheerleader of. “Open Opportunities” is about hope for what comes and what goes. Somethings are not forever and that is okay. The circles are open and opportunities can flow in or flow out.
