This image was meant to be a more generic image of a young woman. It is meant to convey the often opposing, ever changing thoughts that wrap themselves around each other and flow into each other inside our psyche, especially in times of self doubt and confusion. The image was first painted on wihte silk satin and then embellished with applique and stitching. These three Images of Kathy grew out of a very personal experience with my daughter's illness and death but, there they are. I hope that they can be experienced as meaningful depictions of the life we all share with all of it's glories and it's defeats and pain.
