I painted a version of this a few years ago:
I made it for myself — it was a painting to help me understand the impact of trauma and disability has had on my life, and on so many lives.
I liked the composition and I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback on it. I’ve been working on a larger version on it for awhile, and finally finished:
We are all in a continual state of transformation — some feels great, some feels scary. But however life impacts us, we are a sacred part of nature.

I love the mixed media of this, Joy! Beautiful!
The garment is made from medical gauze and torn hand-made paper and yarn. It seemed fitting. Thanks!
