Being Held Captive
“Running around in a circle of dark thoughts, walls of anxiety and no way out. Being held captive by limiting beliefs from outside myself but also inside. Staying ‘stuck’ in this learned behavior of feeling not in control, not worthy enough and a lot anxiety. Breaking out of this cycle was challenging and sometimes it still is. Canceling my debut collection really was the right decision for me because going through all these paintings, the background stories, the notes + quotes I wrote with them back then were quite triggering. I’m so thankful I know how to be at ease, knowing that I’m in control, knowing that I can change my thoughts, the way I feel and what I put out. I’m in control of my life. I am the creator and I look forward to enjoy my newest creations. I am free.”

**This painting is a lot darker in person, the background is indeed a dark anthracite color but the circle is more of a dark blood red shade but due to the beautiful gloss it’s very hard to capture its true beauty and true colors. The first and third picture gets the closest to that.
