"You no longer need your sexual charms, You are safe and secure in your Father's perpetual arms." - inspirational excerpt from SECRET PALACE, SECRET GARDEN by Carolyn Nicole Phillips.. The piece took upon a life of its own one night. The rough sketch looks almost like a total other image. The piece to me speaks of a lost soul living within the realm of dark as if enveloped by the sexual freedoms of a society, but in the end they are found by the Father and taken back to a place where life can still grow, where innocence can once again be found, where the garden is there - familar of the place called home.
