This piece is my visual representation of depression. I wanted to express the exhaustion, the vulnerability and the isolation one feels. However, this piece is not without hope, or with out light. Specifically this was created on a dark day for me, but even at the darkest times I can still see beauty. Some days are hard but there is always hope. Remember to hold yourself in compassion for this too shall pass. I really believe in the healing power of expression. Talk about it, paint about it. You will soon discover how many people care and relate. We are all human. We are never alone.
