While painting Depths of the Heart I was very present to the heartache a friend was experiencing as she navigated her way through a difficult phase of her life. She was facing both an end and a beginning, and while I painted in silence I meditated on the emotions that would come up, the chaos of feeling, and complexity of emotions. I realized I had been painting that moment of transition, the layers upon layers of feelings, of moving from love to sadness, to healing and hope, to a new start.
