The picture above is about vulnerability. Another deeply personal work - although this one is not in The Pulse. I am sharing it with you because it has to do with taming the critic and exposing our vulnerabilities.
This is the kind of cathartic painting that usually happens in my journal. It is difficult to share because in this picture, I'm clearly vulnerable and closed off. Helpless with my spindly arms. My inability to turn my head. My eyes are taking in only what is straight ahead. You don't want to announce your vulnerabilities publically, now do you?!
Does this painting speak to you? What does it say? Are we stronger when we are upfront with who we are and where our vulnerabilities lie?
