Artist's Description

I’m dedicating this painting to the spirit of my beautiful friend Lovely Lenny who sadly left us. You will be forever in my heart.
R.I.P. My lovely Lenny.. XOXOX

This is my first attempt at truly abstract painting, the blue signifies the “blue mood” and each brush stroke ,the many people afflicted by this horrible illness.The figure, well I think he speaks for himself… but his transparency is the feeling one has when his/her spirit (soul) has been removed. Which is how it feels to have clinical depression. I have added this painting to the Women’s appreciation group…even though clearly it is an image of a man…as there are so many millions of women all over the world who suffer from depression. I found I was unable to paint it as a woman ,as it was too close to my heart. I have been a sufferer all my life..and my daughter is also afflicted with this terrible illness… I’m trying to raise awareness…so that others will not have to suffer needlessly. I have written an article on “Coping with depression”
