I think sometimes we tend to undervalue bravery. We think of superheroes with and without capes, when bravery can also be ascribed to the people who face their fears and make peace with their demons. the recovering addict, the person who leaves an abusive relationship, the person who chases their dream, the person who moves forward when life knocks them back a few steps… they too possess a level of bravery that should be applauded. I painted this 12x16 inch piece with shades of red, orange and yellow to represent the trials by fire we all experience on this side. It’s an empowering and inspiring piece that would look great in any small space, or anywhere you have to look at it every day. Maybe you want to put it in your office or your kids’ rooms. We all need affirming.
