Artist's Description

This painting was inspired by a drawing, "In Denial" , I did soon after receiving a diagnosis for a rare and chronic intestinal disorder. I did not want to admit or accept that instead of suffering from something that could just be fixed, I had to deal with this for the rest of my life. This was not the answer I was searching for.
