These paintings, they mean so much to me.
They show my journey, they show my victory.
They show how important art is for me, as a healing process, as an outlet, as comfort.
And I'm so very touched that it means so much to others too.
Thank you so much Nichrysalis for suggesting it, and thank you so much Astralseed for featuring it!
And thank YOU all so very much for all the comments and favs!
This is my pride.
A series of paintings I made from autumn 2004 to spring 2005.
It shows the stages of suffering.
This was the worst time of my life. I was in really bad mental shape. Anxiety, panic attacks, depression, suicidal thoughts and self harm 24/7.
I was in school then, in another town away from home. My teacher was trying to help me come up with something to create, and he browsed through my sketch pad, and found a small doodle that I've made long before that. And he said: Make a painting out of this. And then I thought it would be great as a series, and that is how this came to be.
When I made this, I was in stage 2, the middle painting. I really never thought that I would ever get to stage 3, the last painting. I never thought I would be able to heal.
But I did, that's where I am now. I'm healing.
These are three separate paintings - Oil on stretched canvas, each are 50x50 cm.Featured: kingdomofsweden.deviantart.com…
