I chose the title "The Suffering of Becoming", because I personally have been working on this idea, this reality of human suffering....it's commonality. I have had deep suffering with the onset of rheumatoid arthritis and when I was deep in it, I thought about all the people around the world who suffer. What good can be taken from this terrible experience. What can be learned? At my lowest points, when I could do nothing to take care of my family, house...I could not even paint, I let go of it all. I thought, if all I have are my family and friends. Okay. That is all I need. So this exhibit was about what I learned from several years of physical pain and suffering. I have been very lucky, I am in remission. No more crippling of my joints. I can paint again. When you think of suffering, you probably think of dark and somber colors. You will notice, however, that these paintings are full of vibrant color and light.
