The image depicts a woman who has become lost in the world, where friendships, love and kindness are traded as commodities and often counted as many likes on an Instagram or Facebook page.
Her general appearance, her clothing, her makeup, signifies who, and what she was,
Her thinness represents her emptiness as a condition of her soul as she was naïve and faithless.
She has done wrong to her family, to her community, and to herself.
That day she scorned and shunned a woman who was always there for her when she was in need, and the incident plagued her.
The painting relishes in the fact that it’s not too late,
A revelation as she raises her face to the heavens
