Artist's Description

Blossom is part of the series of paintings I did while coming to terms with childhood sexual abuse. This painting was done when I was finally beginning to come out from the horrible darkness of this period of my life.

Even though the ground looks hard and dry, against all odds, a flower has sprung to life. From the flower blossom, my hand is reaching up towards the Universe and dawn is finally breaking. There are also tendrils that have begun to creep out from the base of the blossom – finally ready to begin expanding and propagating new life.

The entire abuse series can be seen at http://www.gjefle-art.com/abuse/abuse-index.htm
