Drifting Heart

Drifting Heart is a painting that illustrates my heart breaking off from my family and drifting away. In this painting I used the Northern Lights, which have beautiful colors that symbolize my passed away ancestors looking down on me. The icebergs in my painting represent how my family and I broke off and how I am drifting off away as a broken heart. Also, the water (ocean) is very cold and symbolizes that “it’s a cold world”. Painting an album cover helped me to realize that I’m not a shadow and people care about me. It has given me the opportunity to show the world what I’ve been through. Painting an album cover made me feel very special and important. It impacted the way I always wanted to be treated and showed me that art really heals!
