The past couple of years has been life changing and overwhelming for the majority of us. During that time, I learned to protect my peace of mind and to sit in silence. Many were affected directly or indirectly by all of the changes happening in the world. I can say that I was affected in both ways.
The cloud that was hovering over the world took a toll on my mental health and I found myself overwhelmed and stressed more than usual. I sought out therapy, I worked out when I could, but I still felt off and very depressed. Due to my background in Massage Therapy for over 12 years, I have always looked for natural ways to maintain and heal myself. One of those ways was through meditation. Something about sitting still, listening to my thoughts and letting go really does something for me and gives me peace of mind.
My latest painting and my first painting of 2023 is called "Meditation Queen." It represents everything that I just explained above. It is a direct reflection of my life within the past 2 years. Letting go, healing, discovering and gaining clarity through meditation has been the greatest gift. I felt I needed to express this gratitude through art.
I get the most pleasure from bringing joy to people through my art. I want people to realize through this painting that it's ok to heal and work through trauma in the ways that best fit for you. There are so many options to start your healing journey and I wish you all great health, wellness and prosperity!
“And so I wait. I wait for time to heal the pain and raise me to my feet once again - so that I can start a new path, my own path, the one that will make me whole again.”
