Transcarnation" is an acrylic painting that uses the transgender colors of soft pink, baby blue, and white to illustrate an aspect of my being a transgender woman. I feel as if I have been"reincarnated" as a new person with an interesting blend of masculine (blue) and feminine (pink) and in-between (white). Furthermore, I feel that my self-respect enables me to stand tall in a field of other carnations, shown here split mostly male on the left and female on the right with a few crossovers. I hope my piece is a positive message for viewers to see that it is okay to express your true self. In addition, I hope the image of this flower can help a person deal with the loss of a loved one. Perhaps because of the intrinsic beauty of flowers, including a carnation depicted here. Perhaps because of the beautiful colors of pink, blue, and white, which can also be seen as universal. And perhaps because of the aspects of nature, including a blue sky and green fields. My painting can be a reminder that we are all part of nature and the universe. For the person who lost a loved one, perhaps for whatever reason, I hope this image can give you some comfort and strength.
