The Freedom Within was the first painting in which I used mixed media: eucalyptus bark, pressed maple leaves and ginger flowers.When I started this painting, I was still living in my childhood home. While painting, I came to a amazing realization. This was the transition of leaving the Nest. I was 18 and I now could choose for the first time what I wanted for my life. From the simplest thing such as going to the store without letting Mom know where I was going, to the deep thoughts of where do I want to live and who do I want to live with…I felt the Freedom Within. I felt choice for the first time. I realized I was free to choose my own Life!
