This piece is called "tenderness" worked in layers and a variety of mixed mediums. I also wanted to share part of a poem from Ben Okri, "Healing The Wounded Learner or the Pygmalion Complex"
We are all wounded inside in some way or another
We all carry unhappiness within us for some reason or another.
Which is why we need a little gentleness and healing from
one another. Healing in words, healing beyond words
Like gestures. Warm gestures. Like friendships, which will always
Be a mystery. Like a smile, which someone described
As the shorest distance between two people
I hope you received some smiles today and were able to return the gift.
