They Painted Me With 10000 Colours

They Painted Me With 10000 Colours


By Elicia Ward


“They painted me with 10,000 colours & told me only to use one. So certain ‘they’ knew how it was done. I was young, & convinced I was wrong. So I thought I’d paint my face in a way ‘they’ claimed to be right. But finally I fall awake tonight. Though all my old dreams are weathered. Colour now cascades from the fake they made & colour is now the path I walk.”



The girl you see in the picture is my inner child. She shows up in many of my drawings and visions. She is the one that feels everything and expresses everything. She wears hiking boots and a high collar jacket that converts into a hood to protect her from any storm. The Umbrella she holds can be used to shield or as something to help guide her. This girl has been in my visions for many years now it’s only in the last decade I have really understood her significance. The further on my journey I travel, the more I see how beautiful, curious and courageous she really is. The woman in the centre is making a promise to never fold her light, never compromise her bright colours to meet the needs of another. She is bright, powerful & alive this is her truth.
