"That which you mistake for madness, is but an over-acuteness of the senses" - Edgar Allen Poe, Tell Tale Heart - 1843
This painting is meant to be impactful to the senses. I spent my early years suffering in silence, holding pain in my heart and acting out in anger, sometimes even rage. After a great deal of self reflection, therapy and kind people along the way I chose a different path. I now speak my pain, happiness and sadness. My heart doesn't hold back as often when I have something of importance to say. This isn't always an easy path to take, but with it life has become more enjoyable.
I hope this painting gives you strength to speak your heart, you may find when you do people begin to soften as well. It isn't an easy road to travel, bearing your heart to those around you.
Each painting comes ready to hang and enjoy.
