My way out

The first time in my life that I do exactly know the emotions and meanings in every detail of this artwork. My other paintings were created out of intuition, this one is intuition combined with self awareness. I went through a painful personal situation which taught me important lessons about myself. It is hard to not keep in fear, anger, self sabotage, shame and worst of all emotions hate after the biggest disappointment I ever experienced. Somehow I knew that part of my way out was to paint. This was the beginning of this piece. I realized that the previous paintings of this series was my consciousness talking to me. Everything suddenly made sense to me. It was like standing before a big puzzle. It took me about 3 months to finish and opened my eyes.
