Little woman, hiding in the shadows, never reaching the full light of day, holding on tightly, balancing … Read More A Bird on a Wire

About a month or so ago I was struggling with something and I felt the weight of it deep within my soul. When I woke up I decided to just paint and see what came out of me.
