After three years of being extremely ill due to health issues and becoming toxic and adversely affected by methotrexate in 2010, I have regained a small part of my health, some days and I finally was able to produce a painting of more quality in 2013: Chasing Freedom.
The painting is called Chasing Freedom because I am still chasing my freedom from these physically debilitating health issues. Horses are a depiction of strength and power. I have an undying, emotional, and spiritual strength, and an undying, unwavering, determination of belief and power within myself not to give up. I will chase my freedom from these physical health issues, until I catch it. Freedom will be mine. "Freedom," is my good health. Some people think that wealth is everything, but without your health, you have nothing.
I had a painting on display in 2008: Multiple Myeloma. It was the coming attraction of the event, which was fun and exciting. It was the first painting I had ever painted. Due to a busy lifestyle of working full-time, going to school full-time, being a single parent, being ill, then finally becoming extremely ill after taking methotrexate, I was unable to get my art displayed again until 2013. I was, am, grateful to have had the opportunity, to have a collection of my art, which consisted of, "Chasing Freedom, Toxic, Cardinal Express, Autumn Flurry, and Inspiration on display for a few month. It was a great accomplishment after not being physically capable of living a life I desire, for so long. :-) Art is hope.
