Caught

“Caught” was done in my twenties not long after I was diagnosed with a mental illness. I was emotionally reeling, feeling like my diagnosis couldn’t be true. I felt like I had no future – like I was “dead in the water” so to speak. Looking at this picture now, the frenetic marks seem representative of the tornado that was rushing through my brain in 1991.
 

Years later, my life has completely changed. God has given me a way out of the confusion and given me a future, peace, and a normal life and family. Experiencing hardship never seems to make sense at the time, but it always makes me grateful for what I have after the storm is over.
