GUESS I GOTTA HANG IT UP AGAIN FOR A WHILE by 


ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
painting done during healing process during the 2nd experience of not being able to walk…

Unwanted Visitor

I sometimes ignore when pain knocks on the doors ..
but pain gets angry..
does not like to be ignored for long..
it finds its revenge by bashing in the doors until it is acknowledged…
ok…
i am here…
i know you are here too….
please don’t overstay your visit again..
i am actually sick of you…

    You have a very strong and convincing way of depicting psychological themes. This gives such a great insight in this state of mind.
