I’m not really sure what inspired this piece.
All I know is that it expresses the state I am in at the moment, which is one of reflection on my past and on my therepeutic progress and on the process itself.
It’s also a depiction of the on of the “selves” the part I call Matilda. And Matilda has had to do some things that are very hard for her, like trust and communicate her emotions.
In this picture, I think she is reflecting on this, and contemplating how she (and I) has started to think a bit differently about things like life, death, purpose, and the future.
