"Just a spark of the imagination can lead to a blaze of creativity if we’re brave enough. Many artists are familiar with Henri Matisse’s words, “Creativity takes courage.” Creativity is courage, because to create is to be vulnerable. So let’s extinguish the inhibition, the judgment, the expectation, so we can make room for transformation. Let’s cast a circle, a safe space for our ideas to rise up and dance with us." Elisabeth Ladwig

"Rising" is a digital composite artwork depicting a woman with a circle of fire on the ground around her. The woman is wearing a long, flowing red dress and her blonde hair is trailing behind her, suggesting swift movement. Beyond the circle of flames, the background features a landscape with rugged, reddish mountain formations under a subdued, overcast sky. Above the mountains, slightly to the left, there is a small red bird in flight. The overall atmosphere of the piece is dramatic and somewhat surreal, with the contrasting elements of fire and nature creating a scene that conveys creativity and passion.
