Light in my heart...always


"Yesterday, not today", acrylic on paper ©K.Dunn


So many times in my life I have asked the muses to help me see what my unconscious knows. I do this by painting. If I feel very raw about something, painting lets me embrace my bones and all my organs and cells and say, "It's okay, we understand, but look at the light here, look at this heart of yours."

That is what this painting is, a love letter to myself and my daily efforts to create a place that is safe, not only for my animals, but for me and my husband - safe physically, but emotionally as well.

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
