I have been busy painting and working on my “Healing” art series between my graphic and web design projects. My most recent artwork is called “Strength”, 16in x 20in, acrylic on canvas.
“Strength” symbolizes my healing process of visualizing my skeleton, my thoughts, my emotions, and my attitude growing stronger each and every day. It started with a series of painted sinews in red and purple, and then slowly morphed into becoming a strong oak tree with new leaves standing tall in the bright, new moonlight. On the sides is a light, textured area that looks like it has been peeled away to reveal the tree beneath. On these spots are gritty texture in bone-white, symbolizing the endurance of a basic skeleton structure with the outline of tree leaves. The leaves represent newness, education, and growth.
