Fear of Flight

25X19X2.5 Inches framed


11.5X8 Inches interior beaded painting size


This beaded painting by Betsy Youngquist is an example of the work Betsy was creating when she started her adult creative journey decades ago. Under the beads there is a complete painting in acrylic inks on watercolor board. Betsy uses the painting as a color guide for her bead application. Once the painting is completed, the beads, stones, and other mixed media materials are added using glue. An acrylic clear coat finishes the work. The narrative content in these pieces becomes a personal snapshot of a moment in the artist's life using a a menagerie of characters and symbols. Here the figure is hesitant as she clings to her life underground, knowing that she must surface to the magic that awaits above ground into the love and fear that journey entails. The Fear of Flight is about the fear of becoming and the disconnection that fear creates from the inherent power of love. Faeries, stags, aliens, and other creatures inhabit the worlds the figure moves through. The crystals become the energy of the womb, which we must leave in order to thrive and grow. There are two pieces in the Inner Earthling series, they both represent different sides of the same theme. The frame on this piece was handcrafted in Rockford, IL by Jeremy Klonicki and was fashioned out of old organ wood from long gone church that was located in Rockford. The piece is protected with UV blocking glass.
