“Giving Light” – © Mandy van Goeije

This week’s theme for Illustration Friday is “Grow”…this illustration I did a few years ago fits the theme perfectly. “Giving Light” is about growth…about being small and giving light…about being grown up and receiving the light from the little girl.

Growing, unfolding…becoming a person…it’s one of my favorite themes. Because as un-grown as we may be, we usually give so much more light than we are aware of…only in hindsight do we see how wonderful we really were, being that un-grown. As do the grown ups around us… 🙂
