I wrote something in that previous blog about what the name Vivica means. Wanna read it? Here it go:
Vivir means to live in Spanish. Vivi is also at the center of the word "survive" in a few other languages. So, I called her Vivica, which has it's origins in German. It means...alive and war fortress. That's strong, right? ...Everyone doesn't survive their battle with cancer. Everyone does not choose to fight. But no matter what the choice, once you know...every decision, be it to fight or to live the best of what's left, requires strength. That's what I wanted to show. I hope I captured that...(and the beauty of the bosom)...with this piece.
Here's the original:
And here's another version done in all pink:
AND here's a pink bag I made too:
The bag and paintings are available for purchase in the SYM store.
This concludes my "Ode to Vivica" part I.
