Not being afraid
When I finished my radiation treatments for Brest Cancer, I was working on healing and finding myself. This painting represents that part of my life that was facing death, and still allowing myself to enjoy life. Skulls usually represent death, but they are a part of our bodies. They’re a part of our foundation and to me they represent strength.
I remember being afraid of painting the skull and what people might thing of it, specially my mom. I’m still practicing letting go of people expectations. I’m aware that I should not let what other people might think, to limit what I want to create and paint.
