Breaking Down Strongholds

Breaking Down    Strongholds       22 x 22.jpg

My painting, “Breaking Down Strongholds” is about digging deep and expressing more of myself, through a limited palette and materials.  It is celebrating contrasts.  The obvious ones are light and dark, smooth versus textural, pencil against the acrylic, but there is an obscure one that is essential to the creation of this piece.  It is vulnerability.  Most people see vulnerability as a negative, where fear, shame and a struggle for worthiness is at its core.  However it is also the birthplace of creativity, joy, belonging and love.  It is the latter I find the courage to be experiential and be authentic to my voice.
