Womens Divorce Art

This is a series in progress. They are my therapy after a short marriage to a borderline psychopath.The mental health people that treated me all decided he was the problem but not until after the damage was already done because they didn't understand what he was doing even though they were professionals. He had a counseling degree and ran circles around them.He came in all smooth and needy and what seemed like a moment later the world was in chaos. He said I ruined our marriage with kindness and that if he was not going to get my health and death benefits he needed to make other plans.After the shock wore off I filed for divorce.He fought the divorce for 5 yrs while having affairs in my house while I was in hiding. I am trying to rebuild and be a survivor but the ideas keep coming because the aftermath has been hard to clean up and he continues to cause trouble even though I have not seen him in over five years. I am trying to make other plans myself. I continue painting and hope they will help others face their own demons no matter what the source. I am finishing up a new one now, They have all been done since he left.In the end I hope to start creating the revival of self through painting and pieces with a lighter spirit. It is never over........he continues to resurface daily in my life..please see my new gallery of attempted growth, I am trying to get the poison out while I still can for I will soon be on the street .He has caused me to end up homeless. That would not be so hard if it did not mean studioless as well. The final blow came yesterday, He parents told me they knew what he was going to do and did not tell me because they just wanted him gone from their lives. I asked about the ones he is currently destroying and they said he will just move around the country till they run out of money. I am now going to do whatever I can to save the next one. He is on his fourth since me. Thank you for your interest.
