I recently took on the project of transforming an old box set into a new piece for my bedroom. The process involved base paint washes, texture layers, spot varnishes, and a combination of acrylics, spray paints, metallics, and gloss lacquer. I used a mixture of oil and water to create the separation pattern and bubbling effect that I desired.
This project was a combination of experimentation, happy mistakes, and a visual representation of my healing journey through transformation and change.
A HEALING JOURNEY
A MIXED MEDIAABSTRACT PAINTING
This mixed-medium abstract painting is a visual representation of the healing process. The use of greens symbolizes growth and life taking over, while the mix of magentas and purples represents the scabbing and healing process. The textured elements, such as cracks and bumps, symbolize the wreckage and bruising that can occur during transformation.
The painting encourages the viewer to let go and allow time to take care of the healing process, even if it means staying on the narrow path of what has been learned.

Transformation Through Healing:
A Personal Journey.Embracing the Process of Change
This mixed medium abstract art piece represents the journey of transformation and healing. The symbolic use of colors and textures reflects the struggles and challenges of the process, as well as the growth and renewal that come with it.
Through the creation of this piece, the artist was able to remember and honor the stages of their journey, and use it as a daily reminder to stay on the path of self-improvement and forgiveness.
