I wanted to create a "painting meditation" by
incorporating a mantra with an image. I chose
a black and white photo from my childhood that
always made me cringe with memories of what
was going on in my life at the time.
Filling the page with almost 500 statements
of 'I love you' using an array of rainbow
colors initially brought tears to my eyes.
As I drew and painted over the words using
watercolor pencils, my broken heart was
transformed. Such is the power of art.
