I created this painting about 4 years ago. It was a breakthrough in how I saw myself and the world around me. My unique voice started to shine through, even though I felt embarrassed to let my truth out. I'm posting this work to show the truth, the wound, the pain that has come about after ignoring my feelings for so many years. I celebrate everyone who has the courage to speak their truth, show their real feelings, and give themselves a voice.
