Sometimes it can feel like we're only "allowed" to feel one kind of pain or have one kind of problem at a time. But we are not silos of pain, and we never truly feel only one emotion. That person with a broken leg is overwhelmed with anxiety about her student loans and also is excited to eat pie. A person with breast cancer dislikes their roommate and they are having a pretty good day and their cat just puked on the floor. A person living with PTSD from a break-in is really hurt over a break-up and for the first time in his life he's not broke and also his car just broke down.
Though we can't always share the full scroll of diagnoses and traumas and quibbles and aches and joys with everyone we meet, it is okay for us to be messy melting pots of pain and laughter and not okay and actually doing just fine, everything considered. Our experiences don't need to come together in a narrative, and we don't need to apologize for being many things at once, some broken, some whole. This painting is a reminder to feel it all.
This piece is part of the Reminders Collection. Each print has been meticulously color matched to the original painting.
These fine art giclée prints are printed by a woman-owned printshop in Portland, Oregon on museum-quality Hahnemüle cotton rag paper using archival ink (read more about the paper here). They will last well over 100 years without fading, making them true collectibles worth passing on.
