Not everything is easily explained in words. Painting has become a new wave of communication for me. I don't believe that all of paintings should be understood, but the important part to me is the fact that I've exercised some form of communication. This, to me, is like "getting it off of my chest", so to speak. For a long time, I've used several means of communication: poetry, singing, and other forms of theatrics. All of these avenues have been effective, but I don't feel as if I've fully expressed myself the way that I could while painting.
Recently I've reached deep into my emotions and painted the way the I was feeling at that same time.
I smiled, frowned and cried during this painting. Never have I felt so fulfilled after painting this piece. I didn't feel as if I had to write any explanations or disclosures. My feelings were as raw as they come, and I loved every minute of it.
