"You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to."
- Robin Williams, Good Will Hunting (1997)

I’ve been on the road with my sister for the past two weeks in search of beautiful places. We’ve gone all over Oregon and Northern California, seeing some of the most amazing lakes, mountains, rivers, beaches, and forests. The world is so full of beauty. Allow nature to fill you up when you feel loneliness or fear. We are all so lucky to live on such a beautiful planet.

the story behind this painting: I was in an abusive relationship for nine months. I kept trying to get out of it but he didn’t let me and he forced me to do things I didn’t want to do. He put me through incredible emotional abuse (including being the cause of many PTSD symptoms). He finally broke up with me in August and I have been free and happy for the first time in a long time.  But lately, this week I’ve been hating myself for what HE did to ME. And that’s not right. It was not my fault and I refuse to listen to people who tell me it was. Today I took everything and let it all out. Every time he yelled at me, every time he made me scared of him, every time he made me feel less than I was, every time I said no but he shushed me: I put it all on this canvas. It’s no longer in me. I am free.
