I sketched this canvas 4/17/1994 and painted in 2020. This canvas moved countless times across town, to new states and across country. How it survived, never damaged, lost or erased, I am uncertain. It stayed packed away or shoved in a closet. This year I gave life to a sketch I started as a "broken young girl" and promised her no longer shall she hide or be shamed of her scars, beliefs or being. Her voice shall no longer be muted. Together we rise and set forth to help others along their journey.
Original acrylic. 18x24 canvas.
