Throughout this whole painting I was tired. I felt the fatigue that the figure displayed. My kidney disease was physically and emotionally draining and for most of the sessions I could only manage my minimum of 30 minutes a day.

I painted this figure as a representation of myself at this stage in my life and I think that many people will have been in this stage at one point in their lives as well.

If you’re at this point in your life. If you’re bone weary. If even the smallest task seem daunting. Do what you can, keep going, this too shall pass.

If you would like a print of this painting please send me a message with what size you would like here.
