Self-portrait (Sadness)

I did this painting many years ago. This was a very dark period for me. I was feeling very lost. My life lacked meaning and a sense of direction. I felt separated from everything and everyone. I felt separated inside. This painting was so therapeutic for me. Every time I felt stuck, just painting or writing about it, or singing it, got me moving in a new direction. The greatest difficulty, back then, was that I found it so hard to just sit and paint. Once I finally started, and finished it, it generated so much movement.
