I know that when I am having pain, I ought to make light positive images to counterweight what is.
But today I cannot.
My spinal stenosis have taken a new turn on me, and it feels just like this.
A hand with claws attacking my lower back.
That't that, and I guess I soon will adapt to the new period of intense pain.
Not yet though.
My brain screem NO!!!! but my mind says it is OK LOL
Making images is great therapy.
Thanks for viewing and the comments you want to give.

Very good visulisation of a subjective emotion.
But I can feel your pain through this pictures and my thoughts are with you.
I have a nerve that gets pinched in my back if I move the wrong way and it can get so painful it hurts to even breath.
so I can't imagine having to live with that level from day to day but stay strong.
I will visit again soon and browse your gallery when I have more time but right now I have to go to work!

I believe art does have healing powers and the support you get from others is also important. There are few worse things in life than intense unrelenting pain. Back pain is horrendous. That said, this is a powerful image, and I love the imagery you used for this. There's an ancient quality to this, too--like something one might find on an old wall or stone depicting suffering that people can relate to for generations to come. I hope you feel better soon.

Oh I'm so sorry you're in such pain. I know that's no consolation but know I care. I too have slight pain in my back ...it's ongoing...I have to deal with it and grin and bear it. But like you I think you're right doing graphic art is therapy...
And this piece said it all..it's beautifully done.

gun, I am sorry for your pain. I know you've had your share this year. But you've managed to make a powerful image not just for you, but for us. The woman seems to be moving away from the hand that's 'clawing' at her, yet she seems to be bowing to a place of deep comfort. Well, I hope you find that right now. The amber & strong earthen tones in your painting suggest peace, even while the woman is in pain... Another of your powerful portraits of the soul in search of its own light and powers. You always touch us deeply, Gun. Touching and beautiful. I wish you healing.
