So I decided to put away my mixed media painting for now and work on a different type of painting. Its a style that our gallery director liked and told me to reproduce for my final art show.
I originally started the series during my painting course last fall as an experimentation with watercolors. this winter I decided to add layers in acrylic and came up with pretty cool externlised version of my “inner conflicts” when thinking of my experience with cancer.
To me cancer was a name for the pain and the chemo was a way to take away the pain. Yes I realise now how close I was to death but it never felt like that at the time. For me I came up with this saying that describes the paintings exactly, whther it came from somewhere idk but I consider it my own
” don’t forget the past, but don’t let it haunt the future”
