As emotional beings we tend to absorb our feelings and keep the bad ones bottled up. The face we present to the world may be completely different from the inner turmoil of our true selves. This painting represents the feelings coming out, the ugly side of our life and thought process spilling forward for other people to see and observe. What if everyone that looked at us could hear what truth our inner voice is really speaking? 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

In the end, she hopes that her art will look and feel like an emotional story or journey.
