  • The story behind the painting


    I was tired of myself, tired of falling in the same place, day after day. I felt I was living a double life: there was the outside-me that everyone thought I was. Then there was the inside-me that was tones of blue and black, like a bruise I gave myself and kept from healing.


    I knew that God could take my darkness away, but I didn’t know how to give it to him. So I walked through surrender through this painting. Above my blue self is the journal page I tore into pieces, as if I was throwing it up to the sky. And then over my blue self I painted my true self- the woman I didn’t know yet, but knew I was destined to be.


    ...when a prayer or plea is made by anyone among your people Israel—being aware of their afflictions and pains, and spreading out their hands toward this temple— 30 then hear from heaven, your dwelling place.

    -2 Chronicles 6:29-30 (New International Version)
