Here is one of my first paintings from 2011.
|Makes Us Stronger |
Yes it is from the Nietzsche quote, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." I am sure that sounds rather dramatic, but making art isn't all sugar and roses. Sometimes those royally negative feelings surface and wouldn't it be ridiculous to ignore them and pretend they aren't there, for the sake of remaining positive? I think so.
So yes, this painting came from a nasty little part of my brain that was feeling a bit wounded. Thankfully, it took me so long to finish that I came out on the other end feeling all the better for such painful experiences. Nope, no details here. No need to dwell, just need to grow.
