"Each person is obligated to give new life to one's own being. [Tshuvah] . . . is an act of creation--self-creation."
Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik

Acrylic on canvas, 18" x 14", 1993

The self with whom I am pregnant is about to be born and in this image I am "crowning." As I humorously play with the metaphor of rebirth, I mother my own crone. Rather than feeling diminished and unwanted, I declare feelings of growth and liberation.
