Untitled, Lindsay.

24" x36"
Acrylic paints, handmade paper, glass, sand and gloss medium on canvas.


about the painting.
This piece began after I was discharged from the hospital and Zoe-Beth was still there on a ventilator. Many things are represented here. My torn placenta, the beauty, pain, new life and longing. I feel like this painting truly represents where I was at during and after my daughter's short life and death. It hangs above the dining table to remind me of the past, but to also remind me of the beauty the future may hold for me yet. --Lindsay
