Belly Painting: My Womb is my Baby’s Entire Universe

A few weeks ago, at a friend’s birthday party, Rachel DeBoer (a dear old Maui friend who happens to be one of the top body painters in the world) approached me and proclaimed” I have to paint your belly!”

Soon after, the day was scheduled and I was brainstorming ideas of what to transform my belly into. 

Then, one day I was listening to that Deepak Chopra book again, and I heard the words “your womb is your baby’s entire Universe. It is everything he knows.”

I immediately texted Rachel the quote I had heard, and she immediately got it. We’d paint the Universe on my belly.

The following are images captured on “belly painting day” by my dear friend (and excellent photographer) Naomi D. Sheikin.

First, a shot of the work in progress, with Rachel hard at work:
