NB - The above sizes are actually inches to me; that's what I measure in.
This painting was done at the request of the opening of an company who deals with breast cancer. The title and image suggests the great powers of healing we all have within ourselves and certain symbols in the painting suggest healing and transformation - water, DNA, butterfly, caduceus, star. And there's also the red road of human life; I just happen to live off of the Red Road in Miami.
The woman has her arms crossed over her chest. She's strong and beautiful and you don't know if she has breasts or not - that's a link I wanted for women undergoing breast cancer in particular who might face, or have had, a masectomy. But above all this painting is about healing and transformation for everybody. Last word - viewers can't usually work out whether she's white or black, and I think that's fitting because this is about everyone and everything, starting with women.
Materials - acrylic paint on canvas, and, unusually for me - glitter! Also felt tip pen.
