This is a very personal painting, I wish to share with you.
Created during an ongoing Flare -Up caused by Fibromyalgia.
As I struggle through my days, with wide body pain...
I reach for my paints as a means of escape.
Honestly...when I am in this much pain,
I am not thinking about my color pallet, theme, or what message I am trying to reveal...
I just let it flow.
As I pull myself back, and look at the painting...
I see beautiful, bright colors and a peaceful look upon her face.
So, I asked myself this question...
How could anyone paint while they are in such great pain,
such a face of beauty, peace, and pure raw contentment...?
I dug deep.
I reached further than the pain, that was in front of me.
