Inspired by frida .....
" I PAINT SELF PORTRAITS BECAUSE I AM THE PERSON I KNOW BEST."
I don't think i know my self, not really. But it is not self knowledge i need, but self trust.
Under the layers of my frequent fluctuating mental, emotional and physical state i think of what there could be. I do not know it yet, i feel wrapped up in the layers.
But like drawing a self portrait, if i look deep enough i am no longer tormented by myself and my features. I can relax, my vision seems clear. I forget myself; there is no judgement, no blame, I am just witnessing what i see.
