Peaceful Feeling


Peaceful Feeling

 

Karen Barill

I have Hidradenitus Suppurativa Hurley Stage III, Affected by this disease since my pre-teens with over 48 surgeries and skin grafts, with my latest surgery August 2018 another skin graft in my groin. My art takes me to a better place. PEACEFUL FEELING: Recovering from another skin graft my mom was sending encouragement through FaceTime. Accidentally I screenshot my face and realized my face looked very sad with tears in my eyes. I printed out the photo, redrew my face and shadowed it in with charcoal. I drew flowers around my face to make a sad situation better. I used colorful water colors for paint and named it “Peaceful Feeling” because that’s how I felt when it was completed.
