Release (Freedom Belongs to Those Who Know the Beauty and Power of Their Voice)
acrylic on canvas panel
This painting began with the image of the iris, which reminds me of open spaces: an open mouth, an open wound. Here, it is both, revealing one of the most internal of organs, the heart. To dream, to speak, to look beyond one's current circumstances...this is the freedom all should seek. I'm not foolish or conceited enough to say that I (or anyone) has fully obtained it, but I feel that to stop trying is to stop living.
