We all have bad things happen to us in our lives and we all have internal demons we tussle with. It isn’t about comparing them to others, measuring the magnitude of them or even keeping the feelings about them buried or expressing them. It’s about learning from those events and issues, dealing with them and then moving on from them. This is what I was thinking about whilst working on this painting. Well… that, but also how cool it would be to own a Bonsai Tree.
