Description These twin peacocks are a scratchboard/watercolor blend. They symbolize the remembrance and fond memories of love of someone lost. The white lily they hold symbolizes purity, and memory. The calligraphy on the banner states 'Amor animi arbitrio sumitur, non ponitur' or, 'We choose to love, we do not choose to cease loving'.
Keely Dolan, Seattle Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement My name is Keely Dolan, and I'm a Seattle based artist. I work in many mediums, but primarily in the hyper-detailed medium of scratchboard, manipulating it uniquely like a very fine woodcut. I often add watercolor to my finished pieces, which, on the starkness of the white of the uncovered scratchboard, often gives my originals a jewel-like quality.
My inspiration comes from dreams and nature, with a sprinkling of the occult. I am interested in the symbolism of nature and how it can transcend into our sleeping hours.
