Artist's Description

This song suggested by Lina……really helps to bring it home…the despair of living with guilt. OF" WHAT I’VE DONE!!":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybAbRx6hqJo
The lyrics can be found below.

This was originally a painting on canvas…..24"x 36" But it was painted over. I did this piece for a woman that I met on a flight several years ago. Her name is Judith Ann Hillard. She overcame the addiction to cocaine and in her recovery she wrote a book about it called The other woman at the Well
Although I never thought I could relate to such a book, her journey was so compelling and made me want to continue…..to know more about how and why it happened to her. She didn’t fit the profile, and I think the lesson is that it can happen to anyone. I highly recommend this book. Judith is so wonderful in her ability to express the depth of despair one has in the darkest corners of addiction.
A line from her book was the inspiration for this piece.

“If you fear the darkness, you learn to carry a lantern. If you have lost the ability to distinguish between night and day, the lantern illuminates nothing.”
I hope you will take a look at her site and read just a little of her journey! It is amazing that she lived to tell about it!

“What I’ve Done”
In this farewell
There’s no blood
There’s no Alibi
‘Cause I’ve Drawn Regret
From the truth
Of a Thousand Lies

[Pre-Chorus]
So let Mercy Come
And Wash Away

[Chorus]
what i`ve Done
I’ve faced myself
To Cross out what I’ve Become
Erase Myself
And let Go of What I’ve done

Put to rest
What you Thought of Me
While I clean this Slate
With the Hands of Uncertainty

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

For What I’ve Done
I start again
And whatever pain may come
Today this ends
I’m Forgiving What I’ve Done

[Chorus]

What I’ve Done
Forgiving What I’ve Done
