I spent some time reflecting on my life, from the dysfunctional family of my childhood to my current career as an artist, and how this path has shaped me.
I guess part of my recovery is just taking in my life experiences, my emotions, the happiness and the pain, and turn them into art. And through the process, I learn and understand just a little bit more about myself and the world around me.
Art has always been a powerful outlet that helped me and others communicate our ideas and emotions. For all the aspiring and young artists out there, don't let anyone discourage you. Be it random strangers on the internet or your own parents, no one knows you better than yourself, and no one lives your life except yourself. So don't ever let anyone take that away from you, your emotions, your art, your sense of self.
At the online shop (if i understood correctly) I can only buy a printed version of it. I really like those 2 images and I thought they would look extremely good in my home.

I believe I oogled at this one for at least 20 minutes trying to descipher every brush-stroke and feeling....
It's so thought-provoking. It's perfect.
Art is great for self-expression and this is a wonderful piece.
