I don't always know what a painting means when I begin working. My initial goal was to show a different side of myself than the bubbly, exuberant personality that my friends are accustomed to. After capturing my likeness, I found myself veering more toward abstraction in the surrounding space. The shapes that formed around the back of my head became swirling representations of the many-layered thoughts - grief, joy, doubt, fear, hope, sorrow, love - that got amplified during the quiet times of isolation during this past year. As it evolved, this painting came to be about the importance of making peace with the present moment.
