copyright © 2008 anafrikanviolet, Oil Pastel On Paper

I had a hard time titling this, but it is another self-portrait. I did this about 7 months ago. I was going through some changes in my life and I just couldn’t find any joy. Most of my work isn't very detailed; it's very abstract. I don't do faces or hands, for example. When I stepped back from doing this piece, I looked. Not only am I missing from this piece, but you can see my hurt in the gesture of my hand over my heart. This piece was one of the things that moved me into my writing. I needed to grow as an artist, but I also needed to express myself in a much bigger dimension.
